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

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

"I deserved a suspension", Hill told TMZ at the airport in Los Angeles.

Hill also was asked about the speculation that she would leave ESPN. I regret, a lot of the people I work with, the position we put our show in. The firestorm surrounding Hill began last month, when she called President Trump a "white supremacist". I deserved it. Like absolutely I violated the policy, I deserved that suspension.

It was not clear what social media posts Hill was being punished for, but the journalist went on a tweet-storm two weeks ago about Cowboys owner Jerry Jones stating players on his team who protested the national anthem would not be allowed to play in games.

ESPN suspended her, saying the Cowboys tweets constituted her second violation of its "social media guidelines", which weren't clearly detailed in a statement from the network. "She previously acknowledged letting her colleagues and company down with an impulsive tweet".

While Hill believes she deserved the suspension, she said she would only apologize for putting ESPN in a tough position after her controversial political tweets. "If the rationale behind JJ's stance is keeping the fan base happy, make him see that he is underestimated how all of his fan base feels", Hill wrote on Twitter, adding that "paying customers" should "boycott" Jones' advertisers.

"I want people to understand this: There was never any restrictions placed on me about Twitter", she said. "My regret is that my comments and the public way I made them painted ESPN in an unfair light".

In the TMZ video, Hill told her supporters she was thankful and humbled by their solidarity and said she won't be leaving ESPN over the suspension. We are fine. We are in a good place. I'll never take back what I said.
