Anchor Jemele Hill has been suspended from ESPN.

The company announced the decision on Twitter, stating that Hill is suspended for two weeks after violating their social media guidelines for the second time.

"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."

This suspension comes after Hill tweeted about the NFL protests.

Hill first received backlash after calling President Donald Trump a white supremacist on Twitter in September.
