Suspended CNN contributor Roland Martin has made good on his promise to meet with the gay-rights group GLAAD following his controversial Super Bowl comments. Martin talked about his meeting (which took place last week) on his TV One program “Washington Watch,” and GLAAD responded with a statement addressing the meeting.
[Martin] has committed to meeting with GLAAD and other organizations in the near future for a more substantial dialogue. We support Martin’s commitment to use his media platforms to shed light on the harms of hate-inspired violence and look forward to continuing this dialogue. GLAAD was one of several organizations and LGBT advocates who originally called on Martin to take responsibility for his tweets. We will be reaching out in hopes of working with and involving members of the community in this ongoing discussion.
