CNN has suspended popular analyst Roland Martin over some tweets he made concerning some of the Super Bowl commercials, particularly one concerning the David Beckham underwear ad. GLAAD (Gay Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) says that Mr. Martin's remarks are homophobic. Here is Mr. Martin's tweet.
"If a dude at your Super Bowl party is hyped about David Beckham's underwear ad, smack the ish out of him!"
Mr. Martin has apologized for the tweets. More here from the Hollywood Reporter.
