Jemele Hill will return from her ESPN suspension on Monday, a little more than two weeks after the network sanctioned her for suggesting that NFL fans could boycott advertisers and vendors associated with the Dallas Cowboys, which came after she got away with calling President Trump a “white supremacist”.
“So, here’s how this works: It doesn’t really matter what I think. It matters to people, but here’s the reality: ESPN acted what they felt was right, and, you know, I don’t have any argument or quibble with that. I would tell people, absolutely, after my Donald Trump tweets, I deserved that suspension. I deserved it. Like, absolutely. I violated the policy; I deserved that suspension,” she said.
