Hill's suspension will ban her in ESPN for at least the next two weeks.

Hill called for a boycott of Dallas Cowboys advertisers after team owner Jerry Jones said players who protested the national anthem would be kept out of the game.

'With Jemele Hill at the mike, it is no wonder ESPN ratings have "tanked,"' the president wrote.

Hill had previously called President Donald Trump a "bigot" and "a white supremacist who has surrounded himself with other white supremacists" on Twitter.

Following the network's suspension of Hill, even more influential figures, such as Rev. Al Sharpton, have come forth to proclaim not only an National Football League boycott, but one for ESPN entirely for Hill's suspension. She did say that the Twitter posts "painted ESPN in an unfair light".

Hill's SC6 co-host Michael Smith didn't appear on Monday's show, which The Wrap reported was a "mutual" decision between Smith and ESPN.

The tweets ESPN referenced it its statement were made by Hill on September 11 when she criticized President Donald Trump. Because if ESPN does, there will be even more outrage for their ridiculous treatment and suspensions of their employees for expressing harmless views on their personal social media accounts.

Of course, it wouldn't be a Trump tweet without leaving readers with a few open-ended questions. ESPN distanced itself from the tweet at the time.

The "Sports Center" anchor in a tweet urged fans to boycott Dallas Cowboys advertisers.

Hill's new tweets present a hard problem for ESPN.

ESPN has a $15.2 billion deal with the league to broadcast NFL games through 2021. Will ESPN president John Skipper, who has been one of the most ardent supporters of diversity in the media industry, defend his suspended anchor or cut her loose?
