Roland Martin suspended from CNN

Roland Martin tweets offend GLAAD

Roland Martin, analyst and commentator, has been suspended from CNN for his comments during Sunday’s Super Bowl XLVI. The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) criticized Martin, saying that his tweets were homophobic and flat out wrong.

Martin tweeted, “If a dude at your Super Bowl party is hyped about David Beckham’s H&M underwear ad, smack the ish out of him! #superbowl.” “Who the hell was that New England Patriot they just showed in a head to toe pink suit? Oh, he needs a visit from #teamwhipdatass”

“Ladies, if your man don’t like sports, send his azz back to the factory. He came to you defective! #rolandsrules”

Roland Martin tried to rebuttal the accusations against him by saying that he was simply making fun of soccer, but few seem to by his excuse. Throughout the remainder of Sunday’s game Martin continued to set his twitter a fire.

“I’m sorry. I’m not down with seeing dudes walking around with bags on their shoulders that resemble women’s handbags. #helltothenaw”

The days following the tweets made by Roland Martin CNN released a statement:

Roland Martin’s tweets were regrettable and offensive. Language that demeans is inconsistent with the values and culture of our organization, and is not tolerated. We have been giving careful consideration to this matter, and Roland will not be appearing on our air for the time being.

Last night Roland issued a statement stating, “I sincerely regret any offense my words have caused.”

This comment simply seems to be Roland Martin side-stepping any real apology and just trying to make nice with the head honchos at CNN and the rest of the people that he angered.
