The ESPN host is getting paid while being suspended.
Jemele Hill is currently suspended by ESPN for two weeks for a second violation of the company’s social media policy.
The SportsCenter host was suspended after she tweeted about a potential boycott of the NFL’s sponsors following Jerry Jones’ comments about the national anthem.
Hill’s suspension isn’t too severe, though.
It reportedly comes with pay.

ESPN has suspended its employees without pay before. The network reportedly wouldn’t comment on if Hill’s suspension was with or without pay, or if she was also prohibited from social media.
Hill has tweeted once since the suspension news dropped.
I love you @michaelsmith for being my biggest supporter, a great friend, terrific husband & father. I truly don't deserve you. See you soon.
