CNN Suspends Roland Martin Over ‘Gay’ Super Bowl Tweets

CNN’s Roland Martin has been suspended over controversial Super Bowl tweets he sent. The Washington Post’s Erik Wemple has more:

On Super Bowl Sunday, Roland Martin of CNN issued some homophobic tweets that got him in trouble with gay organizations and this blog. CNN stayed silent on the matter, until just moments ago, when it issued this statement:

“Roland Martin’s tweets were regrettable and offensive. Language that demeans is inconsistent with the values and culture of our organization, and is not tolerated. We have been giving careful consideration to this matter, and Roland will not be appearing on our air for the time being.”

The Huffington Post adds:

The move came three days after Martin caused an outcry by tweeting that people should “smack the ish” out of any male fans of an underwear ad starring David Beckham. He also made fun of a New England Patriots player who arrived wearing a pink jumpsuit. “He needs a visit from #teamwhipdatass,” Martin wrote.
