‘ESPN has released a statement saying it has suspended the popular host Jemele Hill after a string of tweets about the Cowboys owner Jerry Jones’

EXCERPT:

BALDWIN: "Here is the breaking news into CNN. ESPN has just released a statement saying it has suspended the popular host Jemele Hill after a string of tweets about the Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and these tweets included, here you go, 'Jerry Jones also has created a problem for his players, specifically the black ones. If they don’t kneel, some will see them as sellouts.' She goes on, 'If you strongly reject what Jerry Jones said, the key is his advertisers. Don’t place the burden squarely on the players.' And then in this whole string she later clarified some of her comments, tweeting this: 'Just so we’re clear, I’m not advocating an NFL boycott, but an unfair burden has been placed on players in Dallas and Miami with anthem directives."
