ESPN has suspended His and Hers co-host Jemele Hill amid controversy surrounding her tweets about NFL players boycotting the national anthem.

The network released a statement on Twitter.

It reads, “Jemele Hill has been suspended for two weeks for a second violation of our social media guidelines. She previously acknowledged letting her colleagues and company down with an impulsive tweet. In the aftermath, all employees were reminded of how individual tweets may reflect negatively on ESPN and that such actions would have consequences. Hence this decision.”

The latest of Hill’s tweets include her coming for Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones after he said any players who don’t during the national anthem will be punished.

Hill told her followers that anyone who disagrees with Jones should stop watching the games and ultimately boycott companies who advertise with the Dallas Cowboys. Trump also responded to the suspension.

Hill's tweets came after Hill tweeted about President Donald Trump last month. Following that incident, she released an apology.

“My comments on Twitter expressed my personal beliefs. My regret is that my comments and the public way I made them painted ESPN in an unfair light,” she wrote. “My respect for the company and my colleagues remains unconditional.”
