After her controversial comments about President Trump, Hill then spoke ill about coach Jerry Jones for making players stand during the national anthem. Her comment, which called for followers to boycott his sponsors, led to her suspension. 

But liberals have Al Sharpton coming to their defense. According to Breitbart News, Hill's suspension, he thinks, was absolutely "outrageous." 

“First of all, Jemele Hill and anyone else has the right to express their views,” Sharpton told TMZ

He continued, "To try and silence her will not silence many of us that feel what Jerry Jones has done is put the Cowboys players in a position of either I must sell my right to express my feelings, my freedom of speech, my right to protest in order to do my trade and do my business. That is, in my opinion, disrespecting what the flag is supposed to stand for.” 

“We will not be shut down and we will not be suspended and we will not stand for her to be suspended,” he added.
