GLAAD accuses CNN contributor of inciting violence against gay men

CNN's Roland MartinThe Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation is calling for the firing of CNN contributor Roland Martin for a series of apparent anti-gay messages posted to the social networking site Twitter during last night's Super Bowl.

Martin, sounding off on the H&M ad featuring soccer star David Beckham, wrote:

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

Martin has already apologized, via Twitter, of course, for the remarks, but not before posting more than a dozen explanations and replies saying he was “ripping on soccer,” not insulting gay men.
