Should Roland Martin Be Fired for David Beckham Underwear Ad Tweets?

Posted by tina_peril

Exposed body parts from the Super Bowl continue to stir up controversy across the Internet.

With M.I.A.’s immature finger flip causing both NBC and the NFL to apologize, GLADD is now up in arms over comments made last night by CNN contributor Roland Martin.

While watching the Giants victory over the Patriots, Martin Tweeted the following in response to David Beckham’s underwear ad for H&M (below):

GLADD noticed and wrote back: “Advocates of gay bashing have no place at CNN,” to which Martin then replied:

“You’re clearly out of touch and clueless with what I tweeted. Way to assume, but you’re way off base.”

The gay rights organization has since sent around an online petition that pushes for to Martin be fired. It has collected approximately 2,000 signatures so far.

What do you think of Martin’s comments? Homophobic? Or just lame and unfunny? Should he be fired?
