ESPN faces nasty liberal boycott after suspending Jemele Hill

ESPN had already successfully alienated its conservative viewers and it looks like the network is now under fire from liberals as well.

Left-wing activists and celebrities took to social media to call for a boycott against ESPN after it suspended host Jemele Hill, who was at the center of last month’s controversy when she called President Trump a “white supremacist” on Twitter.

The president appeared to react to the news of Hill’s suspension in an early morning tweet on Tuesday.

While the sports network apparently thought their employee’s offensive jab at the president was not worthy of any disciplinary action, Hill’s latest action was a different matter as it directly affected ESPN’s wallet. When Dallas Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones vowed to bench any player who took a knee during the national anthem, Hill called for a boycott of the game’s advertisers.

ESPN acted quickly and suspended the outspoken host for violating its social media policy with another “impulsive” tweet.

ESPN’s political stances have taken a toll on the network as it struggles to maintain ratings in the wake of its clearly liberal bias. But Hill’s suspension sparked a backlash from liberals this time, who launched a “#BoycottESPN” hashtag on social media to vent their anger.

Activist Al Sharpton vowed that ESPN and its advertisers would “hear from us” in a tweet shortly after the network’s announcement.

Hollywood’s left and others joined the offensive, turning on the network they were just praising for its anti-conservative bias.

Of course, conservatives continued to enjoy watching the left turn on its own.
