    So CNN Might Fire Roland Martin

    Damn, you have to be careful of what you type these days.


    Roland Martin’s call to attack men that liked a David Beckham ad has prompted the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation to demand that CNN fire the commentator. It all started with a tweet Martin sent after Beckham’s commercial aired during the Super Bowl : “If a dude at your Super Bowl party is hyped about David Beckham’s H&M underwear ad, smack the ish out of him!” The tweet caused GLAAD to respond by writing, “@rolandsmartin Advocates of gay bashing have no place at @CNN #SuperBowl #LGBT” His response? “Well you’re clearly out of touch and clueless with what I tweeted. Way to assume, but you’re way off base,” he wrote. The CNN personality wrote to his more than 94,000 followers that his comment was about soccer, not sexuality. “It’s hilarious when idiots…see my Beckham tweet as homophobic and I rip on soccer all of the time,” he wrote. The exchange hasn’t satisfied GLAAD, which sent a statement to the Hollywood Reporter stating, “Martin has a history of anti-LGBT views. GLAAD is calling on him to be fired, joining many other LGBT activists and bloggers.” UPDATE: Monday morning, Martin issued this statement: “Fam, let me address the issue that some in the LGBT community have raised regarding some of my Super Bowl tweets yesterday. I made several cracks about soccer as I do all the time. I was not referring to sexuality directly or indirectly regarding the David Beckham ad, and I’m sorry folks took it otherwise. It was meant to be a deliberately over the top and sarcastic crack about soccer; I do not advocate violence of any kind against anyone gay, or not

    *steeeeeuuupppsss* Oh they need to stop that ish already. Football is a men's sport! Real men, not gay men. It is completely natural for your typical man to make a statement like that, particularly one that is into football.

    Quit trying to force that ish down everyone's throat like it is natural. What Martin said is natural...period.

    regardless of taken outta context or what.

    if a group or class of people feel threatening words where made against their particular class or group, they have a right to speak out about it..
