Dez Bryant and ESPN personality Jemele Hill had a spat on Twitter this week over the Dallas Cowboy refusing to stick up for Colin Kaepernick. It happened after Bryant gave a waitress at Blaze Pizza a $75 tip. After the waitress playfully suggested she still hated the Cowboys in a deleted Tweet, Bryant playfully struck back.
I won't be having blaze pizza at that location again lmao https://t.co/igsjiBUk9J— Dez Bryant (@DezBryant) August 23, 2017
From there, Hill chimed in and seemed to bring up Kaepernick, who's seemingly been black balled by the NFL for kneeling during the National Anthem before games last season.
But won't take a stand against ... nevermind .. https://t.co/KvL8RDLWJ5— Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) August 24, 2017
Eventually, Dez responded.
She part of the media.. 9-10x she will know the fact..instead ride the wave..it's not that serious..go boycott your job and tell me about it https://t.co/efwKWnjQ7P— Dez Bryant (@DezBryant) August 24, 2017
Then Hill shot back.
I know you were joking. As was I. Truth in every joke, as you know. https://t.co/BbEHpP3ZI0— Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) August 24, 2017
My official position (as I said on the show): Dez is free to not speak out or protest, but don't undermine those that do. https://t.co/guoKj4unAm— Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) August 24, 2017
All of this comes a couple of weeks after Dez said he wasn't interested in commenting on the Kaepernick situation, because he didn't want to lose his job.
What do you think about all of this? Was it right for Hill to call Dez out?
