Suspended CNN pundit to meet with GLAAD after Twitter flop

CNN's Roland MartinPolitical pundit and “real bruh” Roland Martin will meet with the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. Martin has been under fire for his choice of words on the social networking site Twitter during last weekend's Super Bowl.

Martin, criticizing an H&M ad featuring near-nude soccer star David Beckham, wrote, “Ain't no real bruhs going to H&M to buy some damn David Beckham underwear! #superbowl” on the micro-messaging site.

“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” he added.

It didn't take long before GLAAD swooped in, calling out the CNN contributor for inciting violence against gay men. Martin said he was taking a jab at soccer, the most un-bruh sport, apparently, not gay men.

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.
