Jamele Hill On Being Suspended For Calling Trump A “White Supremacist” – I Deserved It!


ESPN “SC6” co-host Jemele Hill is returning from her suspension and so-called “forced vacation” on Monday.

She was on suspension because she violated ESPN’s social media guidelines not once, but two times. She did this by calling for a Dallas Cowboys boycott when the owner Jerry Jones said to his players that if they have no intention to stand for the anthem- they shouldn’t even play and they should stay in the locker room.


Before she came back to work, on Saturday, Jamele Hill admitted that she deserved the two-week suspension.

“I deserved a suspension,” Hill said for the TMZ Sports. “I violated the policy. Going forward we’ll be in a good, healthy place.”

When asked about the rumors spreading that she will be leaving ESPN and starting a new career she refuted the rumors by saying that she has no intention of doing so.
Moreover, she mentioned that she is in a good standing with her employer from which can be suggested that she was probably reasonable and could understand why she deserved the suspension.

“We’re in a good place and I’m happy to be back with the network,” she said.

Since most of her comments were on twitter, she was asked if she was coming back there to which she answered:

“Yeah, absolutely” – which probably means that she will continue with her criticisms there.

This is what else she said:

“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. Going forward we’ll be in a good healthy place, it’ll be fine and I’m looking forward to it.”

Hill continued, “The only thing I ever apologize for, I put ESPN in a bad spot; I’ll never take back what I said.” She refused when given an opportunity to express how she feels about President Trump, only saying that he already knows.
