Roland Martin from CNN tweeted homophobic messages during the Super Bowl.
He said that people should "smack the ish out" of men who liked the H&M ad that was advertised during the Super Bowl and showed David Beckham in his underwear. Martin said that "real bruhs" wouldn't buy the underwear.
He also said that a New England Patriot player who showed up wearing a pink jumpsuit "needs a visit from #teamwhipdatass".
GLAAD, a gay rights group, said that Martin has a history of being anti-LGBT and called for CNN to fire Martin.
Someone who is a part of a major news network should not be advocating violence against gay people in a society that is plagued with hate crimes and gay bullying. Gay bashing is not a joke -- it is a serious problem.
Tell CNN to fire Martin and stand up for the LGBT community!
Please fire Roland Martin. His tweets advocating violence against gay people, in a society that is plagued with hate crimes and gay bullying, is not okay -- especially not for someone that is part of a major news network.
