ESPN Suspends Jemele Hill For Breaking Social Media Rules

Report: Jemele Hill, ESPN to part ways

Former ESPN SportsCenter anchor Jemele Hill will reportedly leave the network by Saturday, Sept. 1.

Longtime ESPN watcher James Miller reported Saturday on Twitter that Hill and the sports network came to “an amicable” buyout of her multi-million dollar contract. 

Hill has not confirmed the move, but posted a video of a dumpster fire on her Twitter feed with the comment: “Live look at my mentions.”

ESPN suspended Hill in October over her NFL tweets, urging advertisers to boycott the Dallas Cowboys over their response to NFL players’ national anthem protests. 

Hill left her anchor chair on SportsCenter in February and remained at the sports giant writing for The Undefeated, the network’s vertical dedicated to race, culture and sport.
