GLAAD Wants Roland Martin Fired Over Super Bowl Tweets
1 year ago
Tweet about David Beckham H&M ad starts uproar.
David Beckham's H&M commercial may have made a lot of women happy, but it got someone in trouble last night.
CNN and TVOne personality Roland Martin is in hot water for what several LGBT organizations are calling "homophobic tweeting."

The ad, which shows soccer star David Beckham in a pair of tight H&M boxer briefs, caught the attention of Martin who sent an interesting tweet out right after it aired.
He 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."
GLAAD immediately responded to that tweet saying: "@rolandsmartin Advocates of gay bashing have no place at @CNN #SuperBowl #LGBT."
Martin then began to defend himself against Twitter users who felt he was gay bashing and against GLAAD as well.
GLAAD said Martin has a history of anti-gay tweets as he once defended Tracy Morgan's joke that he would kill his own son if he was gay.
CNN has yet to comment on the status of their popular commentator.
