ESPN’s Jemele Hill Back at Work after Suspension

Jemele Hill, the ESPN personality that stirred controversy by accusing [1] President Donald Trump of being a white supremacist, is now officially back at work [2] after being suspended by her employer.

Hill was suspended [3] due to calling for a boycott of advertisers of NFL games, which would affect her employer. ESPN airs NFL games on its Monday Night Football program.

“I deserved a suspension. … I violated the policy,” she said of the decision. “Going forward, we’ll be in a good, healthy place.”

She added that her comments “put ESPN in a bad spot.”
