CNN's political analyst Roland Martin came under attack from gay groups after tweeting a wisecrack about British soccer star David Beckham.

Martin, who is very sensitive when he is the subject of gay jokes, took to his Twitter page last night to "live tweet" during the Super Bowl broadcast. His tweets included this one, which his followers took to be an anti-gay slur:

Martin seemed to suggest that his followers "smack the ish out of" any male Super Bowl fan who is "hyped about David Beckham's H&M underwear ad" that was shown during the Super Bowl.

Martin added that "real bruhs" would not purchase underwear advertised by Beckham.

The gay backlash began almost immediately after he posted his tweets. Martin responded by tweeting that he always makes fun of British soccer -- and that Beckham just happens to be a soccer player.

But the attacks have not relented.

Expect CNN to force Martin to issue an official apology to the gays, who have no sense of humor, except when they are the ones cracking the jokes.

  • MrUnapologetic

    Roland put his foot in this and deserves everything that comes with it (except that Nigger comment). He knows better than to be so flippant and free with his comments as a representative of CNN. For the record I do believe he does have an issues with homosexuals just based on some other comments he's say in the past which is why GLAAD is coming at him so hard - to them this is the last straw. Oh well... I'm sure he will watch his trap the next time.

    Blind Item from Bossip..

    Has the “slave” been doin’ the “masta” dirty???

    One of the blonder, paler-skinned Real Housewives Of Atlanta is rumored to have parted ways with her long-time, weave-wearing, darker-skinned assistant. After noticing that some random items were “missing” and seeing some unauthorized charges on her credit card the reality-show diva filed charges with local authorities and suspected that the assistant could be involved even though police apprehended the culprit. We’ve seen first hand on the show that there has been some tension between the two women because of laziness on the part of said employee. It is also rumored that the assistant has a new boyfriend that she brought to her surgically-enhanced employers house, and that was the straw that broke the cougar’s back!

    Although she is said to be furious with her ex-assistant, she will not speak ill of her because the assistant has TONS of dirt on her and she don’t want those problems!

    Looks like southern hospitality has worn itself a little thin…

  • Ms. Everything

    Nothing in his tweets suggested homophobia and GLAAD in my honest opinion, is overreacting... again... as usual. What's pissing me off though is the main people complaining about how he's discriminating and promoting violence/hatred towards gays are calling him out of his name, attacking his wife, attacking his religion and throwing out n!gger, ape, monkey, "biscuit negro" and all kinds of other shit. :cuss: :mad:

  • I Run New York

    I couldn't agree more Ms. Everything. I call GLADD the gay mafia. They bully and try to silence people that say anything they don't like...ironic since they claim to be against bullying and all about tolerance.
