Freedom of speech?
Roland Martin send some homophobic tweets during the Super Bowl and CNN dropped the hammer.
Here’s the word from CNN: “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.”
Martin sent out tweets about smacking any guy that would pose in an underwear ad like David Beckham and made fun of a Patriot that wore a pink jumpsuit.
“Who the hell was that New England Patriot they just showed in a head to toe pink suit? Oh, he needs a visit from #teamwhipdatass”
GLAAD saw that as promoting anti-gay violence. CNN apparently acquiesced and handed Roland his suspension. You better watch what you tweet!
