Jemele Hill: 'After my Donald Trump tweets I deserved that suspension'

This was just weeks after she found herself at the center of not only in the sports media world, but also in the political world thanks to her tweets about Donald Trump. After her suspension was announced, some commentators like the Washington Post's Erik Wemple wrote that ESPN didn't deserve her and suggested there was nothing wrong with what she had said, at least nothing worthy of a suspension. I deserved it. Like, absolutely. "I violated (ESPN's) policy". I love ESPN as much as ever. She urged the action after team owner Jerry Jones threatened to bench players who took a knee during the national anthem to protest police brutality.

Hill, who has received support from colleagues, athletes and celebrities during the discipline, told the gossip site she believes the network treated her fairly. The first violation was for a string of tweets criticizing President Donald Trump.

Jemele Hill has finally spoken up about her recent ESPN suspension that sent shock waves through social media over the last two weeks.

In the days following her suspension, there were tons of people calling into question ESPN's integrity for bowing in the face of potential pressure from the NFL.

"I want people to understand this".

And as far as what she publicly said about the orange a-hole in the White House, she's not even remotely backing down.

Hill will return to SC6 with co-host Michael Smith on Monday. "My regret is that my comments and the public way I made them painted ESPN in an unfair light". I regret, a lot of the people I work with, the position we put our show in. "So I'll be back on Twitter, and I'll be my usual self".
