ESPN has confirmed that the popular Twitter account for NFL analyst Rich Eisen will be suspended indefinitely pending an investigation into his tweets.ESPN.com first reported the suspension of Eisen’s account in early August.
In an emailed statement, a ESPN spokesperson said: “Our teams’ standards and policies prohibit employees from engaging in the dissemination of personal information outside of our teams’ organizations.
This type of activity is against our rules, and is an affront to our values.
This suspension, which will be enforced at the discretion of our legal team, is effective immediately.
It is important to note that this is a personnel matter, and the NFL does not comment on personnel matters.
We have a long history of supporting our players and our teams, and we stand behind our players.”
Eisen’s account was suspended for 10 days.
The suspension comes after Eisen tweeted that NFL players who protest during the national anthem should “get a life.”
In August, Eisen retweeted an image of himself with the caption “You should be happy when the people you love die so that your enemies may live,” referencing the shooting at a Charleston church in June that left nine people dead.
Eisen was also suspended for a week for tweeting a photo of himself wearing a Confederate flag T-shirt during a game against the Atlanta Falcons in December.
He tweeted that he was “shocked” by the tweet and apologized for his “inappropriate behavior.”
