ESPN Faces Liberal Boycott After Suspending Jemele Hill

DC: ESPN, already unpopular with conservatives, is now facing the possibility of a boycott from furious liberals over the sports network’s suspension of host Jemele Hill.

ESPN suspended Hill for calling for a boycott of the Dallas Cowboys’ advertisers after Cowboys owner Jerry Jones threatened to bench any player who kneeled during the anthem. Hill’s boycott was her second violation of ESPN’s social media policies, the network said. She previously stirred controversy by calling President Trump a “white supremacist” on Twitter.

The backlash against ESPN for Hill’s suspension began almost immediately among left-wing activists and celebrities, many of whom used the hashtag “#BoycottESPN” on social media.  MORE

30 Comments on ESPN Faces Liberal Boycott After Suspending Jemele Hill

  1. Whether its ESPN or your local company, Affirmative Action creates a hostile work environment.

    People rejected for jobs rightly feel their negative impacts for the sake of some diversity balancing act of the cosmic scales.

    Minorities given those jobs feel entitled and if the entitlement doesn’t continue then they bite the hand that feeds them. Eventually and inevitably.

    Like the Rams hiring Michael Sam. He wasn’t qualified and shit the bed before he was fired.

    I see it every day. In fact, I’m listening to it right now.

  2. Serious hurt is on the way as the leftist Marxists are experts at boycotts, mayhem, and disorder!

  3. Newton’s Third Law; for any action there is an equal and opposite reaction. The Lib’s are demonstrating physics in action…Ha!

  4. Just think if ESPN had concentrated on sports and hired people who only cared about sports instead of concentrating on politics and social justice they wouldn’t be in this pickle.

  5. Why is ESPN even a thing?

    They have still photos of a player, add some action music, use some slight motion animation, and do a voice-over. Why is that interesting? They can’t use NFL footage until a certain time has elapsed.

    Now they have a political shit-show on their hands, firing Conservative staff, it’s a MESS.

    I only liked Chris Berman who was there from the beginning, and MADE that network b/c he really liked sports, his job, and wanted it to do well. Sorry Chris, the screwed it up anyway.

  6. Conservatives have been abandoning ESPN for years and now liberals are taking an exit? I have a novel idea. Maybe the sports channel should stay out of the political arena and just present and talk about sports. DUH!

  7. Why don’t these network fools understand that the partisanship is costing them money? If the major news networks along with sports entertainment network’s would just report the news without adding their personal political beliefs, they would literally double their viewership. When you negatively objectify and name call 50% of your viewers, those people are not going to pay for the pleasure of taking that abuse.

    Leftism is not a good economic business model.

  8. @ 3rd twin. I looked at his linkedin page and found a recommendation that either he or some other airhead wrote. From it I can tell exactly nothing of what was done, how it was done and what if anything it accomplished.
    I’m wondering if he didn’t write this flowery junk just so he could do a Weinstein on her. Enjoy

    “Gina was hired to improve our new hire on-boarding process. She quickly set up a detailed project plan that outlined the scope of her work and worked with me to ensure her solutions were meeting our needs. At the end of 10 weeks, we now have an improved, on-line solution that is applicable to our entire organization, while remaining flexible enough for individual departments to customize as needed. She took the time to vet her new process with several stakeholders from established executives to focus groups of recent new hires. Using this input she delivered a process that we are proud and excited to use and are hopeful that her efforts will not only shorten the learning curve for our new employees but increase their retention during their first year with us.”

  9. This will get interesting. If they do anything to appease liberals then the conservative boycott will harden and vice versa. Isner may have to decide which is more important, sports or politics disguised as sports. One means money and the other increasing losses. Hell, he may just decide to chuck ESPN completely but then who’d buy it.

  10. Lol, tctsunami

    “…shorten the learning curve for our new employees but increase their retention during their first year with us.”

    What a motley crew of lazy, entitled, ignorant millennials and affirmative action dolts that must be.

  11. tctsunami, on a related note…

    “Home Depot is in full-on panic mode after realizing that an entire generation of Americans have absolutely no clue how to use their products…the company has been forced to spend millions to create video tutorials and host in-store classes on how to do everything from using a tape measure to mopping a floor and hammering a nail.”
