Liberals Launch Boycott of ESPN for Suspending Host Jemele Hill

Written by  Warner Todd Huston

There’s finally something liberals and conservatives can agree on: they both want to boycott ESPN. After the Bristol-based sports giant suspended SC6 host Jemele Hill, many liberals have begun their own boycott of ESPN.

Hill caused quite a ruckus last month, when she tweeted that President Donald Trump is a “white supremacist.”

Network bosses soon warned Hill that the tweet violated the company’s rules of conduct for using social media. However, she was not punished in any material way despite the fact that the network fired almost half a dozen conservative hosts and analysts for far less.

Yet, Hill proved herself unmindful of the warning a month later, by posting a series of tweets that essentially urged fans to boycott ESPN’s own advertisers and partners. This time network bosses took action and handed Hill a two-week suspension.

As the story appeared across the media, liberals in and out of the sports world went to bat for Hill with hundreds of social media posts coming to her support and demanding that ESPN reverse its decision to punish her.

Mixed-in with those tweets of support, many other liberals threatened a boycott of the sports network.

Leading that charge was MSNBC host and long-time activist Al Sharpton who warned ESPN that advertisers “will hear from us.

That will go nicely with the boycott lots of us Conservatives are giving to ESPN for their anti American behavior. Who knows, maybe with both sides boycotting them, they will have to lay off lots of their overpaid leftist sports commentators. That would be a win/win for all of us.

Does anyone really give a SHIT? If she were WHITE I'm sure this wouldn't be an issue in the least bit!

I too disagree with her suspension!!! She should be outright fired for good and good riddance. Let the left protest all they want. If half your staff at ESPN were allowed to speak their political opinions the left would really go wild.At ESPN it's okay to speak your mind as long as it's leftist crap. If a conservative speaks his or her mind they're gone. These announcers and reporters need to stick to broadcasting without the asides. Take the politics out of sportscasting if they can. If they can't like Jemele Hill, they need to go and find a new line of work. F..k Al Sharpton and his liberal assholes.
