Roland Kicked Off CNN’s Airwaves


By Betsy Rothstein Comment

CNN Analyst Roland Martin has been suspended for the “time being” after making perceived homophobic comments on Twitter on Super Bowl Sunday regarding a David Beckham underwear ad.

“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.” — Statement from CNN.
