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?

David Beckham Super Bowl Ad

 

New Year’s Eve telecasts were chock full of entertaining performances, from Justin Bieber to Selena Gomez.

But Kathy Griffin has stolen many of the headlines from these performers, not by belting out any notes… but by undoing her belt, along with other items of clothing.

Indeed, the comedian co-hosted CNN’s Time Square coverage alongside Anderson Cooper and shed most of her layers while the camera was capturing the crystal ball, confetti and thousands of revelers. When it returned, viewers were treated to the following awkward sight:

“Are you freaking kidding me?” Cooper asked, trying to stifle the sort of laughter that engulfed him a few weeks ago on live TV.

“I have a no-apology policy,” Griffin told CBS news hours after the broadcast. “No apologies for jokes. I apologize in my real life all the time. I say ridiculous things, I make mistakes constantly… But when I’m on stage, I’m at a microphone… it’s a joke!”
