Roland Martin draws CNN suspension for ‘anti-gay’ tweet

Wednesday, February 8, 2012

imageCNN politics talker Roland Martin will “not be on air for the time being” after some tweets during the Super Bowl that critics say were anti-gay, AP says. The one that caught the ire of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation was his crack about an ad featuring soccer star David Beckham in underwear: “If a dude at your Super Bowl party is hyped about David Beckham’s H&M underwear ad, smack the ish out of him.”

Add: CNN poobahs aren’t saying how long Martin will do penance.
