    Big Ole Black Cat wearing PINK, and EVEN talk'n ’bout underwear advert … ? ! Methinks some one is on the ' DOWN-LOW' ! Just say'n ……



  2. 2

    Don't like Roland Martin or CNN. Course if he is gay like "Be-Atch" seems to think, then I guess it would be okay - cause if you are part of a minority then you can slam it - just like blacks using the N—– word. It's only if you are white that you can't say anything (but other groups can slam whites). So much for freedom of speech.

    …..The H&M ad is kinda gay, and David does like having different hair-styles, AND, his wife, Victoria, DOES look like a little teen-age boy…. !



  4. 4

    Regardles…Big Ole Black Dude likely fanatsizes of having Beck's tatooed arms all over his BIG FAT HAIRY SIZE 52 WAIST ! LOL !



  5. 5

    WTF? he wasn't even referring to gays at ALL. Great work GLAAD. And do you even read what you post Perez? It's things like this that hurts any fight for gay rights



  6. 6

    honestly…this is a bit of an overreaction. we have to focus on real hate. I don't think this was remotely hate related. I doubt he was even thinking about gay people when he said it. I think it was more related to machoism - like 'let's focus on the manly football game and do away with these silly commercials with men in underwear - who wants to watch that?". Honestly, like, get over it. Most people in sports like to put on that macho facade. Let's save the complaints for when real hate is being spread. this was just a case of not thinking before tweeting.

    Re: boshemie – Agreed.



  8. 8

    WHY is this dude even talk'n ’bout underwear adverts… ? !



  9. 9

    He's a fat boy.



  10. 10

    WHAT THE FUCK WAS HOMOPHOBIC about any of those comments. PEEREX your GAY AGENDA is getting worse again.



  11. 11

    What an ironically DAPPER dresser!



  12. 12

    Geeze…it is a joke and it is funny and it certainly should not be offensive to anyone with an IQ high enough to understand the implied humor. Does absolutely EVERYTHING have to be completely PC all the freaking time???????



  13. 13

    This is homophobic?



  14. 14

    What is homophobic about what he said????



  15. 15

    That is absolutely ridiculous. That is such an OVERREACTION to his comments. Don't be so sensitive Perez. I'm so sick of GLAAD



  16. 16

    Hmmm. I didn't really interpret his tweets as "homophobic" but more a light joke about just being a stereotypical "guy", ie: you should be pumped about Superbowl because of the game itself/drinking beer/eating nachos/bonding with your buddies; not getting excited about Madonna's performance, Kelly Clarkson singing the anthem or the underwear ads. Maybe he meant it as a homophobic slam (?) but I didn't get that from it.



  17. 17

    This is becoming a witch hunt. These comments made by Mr. Martin are not homophobic or hateful. There are real homophobes out there who need to shown that gays are compassionate, tolerant people. As a gay man, I'd like everyone to know that not everyone sees the world as black or white, like Perez Hilton. Fighting intolerance with intolerance is not the answer. Hopefully in the future, seeing gay people as equals will be an expression of compassion for a fellow human being, and not just a way to keep your job.



  18. 18

    Maybe someone who is a fat idiot at a superbowl party should have the "ish" slapped outta him.



  19. 19

    This article is completely ridiculous. I had to read it three times to see if I missed something. What exactly was homophobic about it? PUHLEEEZEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!



  20. 20

    If anything, I think it was pure man jealousy why Roland made those comments. I mean, Becks is a fine speciman of a man, while Roland is rotund and roly poly, and judging from the threads he's sporting in that pic, he needs a personal stylist.



  21. 21

    I agree with Joethehobo, I'm gay and just cant see whats the big deal with Roland Martins tweets. Everyone needs to chillax, live and let live!



  22. 22

    He can't seem any more confused, huh?

    So pathetic when you see that those comments were made by a grown man. A joke of a man, but a grown-ass adult.



  23. 23

    Re: boshemie – Completely agree with you. Besides, isn't assuming he's talking about gays kind of more offensive than his actual tweet? It just proves that everyone associates feminine men with being gay…which is lame. But how do we know he wasn't just making fun of feminine heterosexual men??



  24. 24

    You know why so many people hate the gays and why there is so much "bullying"?? Because GLAAD turns a simple joke about fucking underwear into a homophobic slur! Get a fucking life…



  25. 25

    This black obnoxious bastards looks like he is gay himself. He looks like a gay little pig.



  26. 26

    Big fat slob wishing he could get into those Beckham's underwear! I hate CNN so I'm not suprised.



  27. 27

    Re: Be-Atch – David and Victoria make a beautiful couple, second only to Brad and Angelina because Angelina is the hottest woman out there.



  28. 28

    The gays are wrong here. They are becoming more oppressive than the people they are against.

    Sad



  29. 29

    good riddance to bad rubbish. hopefully he will eventually not only be suspended but fired. he and his wife are big time homophobes. straight bigots are going to have to learn that you can't just spew hate and not have to pay the piper. sure everyone is entitled to their opinions but hateful opinions can also come with consequences.

    martin has said "my wife, an ordained baptist minister for 20 years, has counseled many men and women to walk away from the gay lifestyle, and to live a chaste life…For her, the obligation is to her calling as a minister of the word, rather than bowing to societal pressures.
    martin then compared homosexuality to alcoholism, one of the "dangers" that must be preached against.

    Martin went on to tell gays –whom he views as "captives" of "sin" — that if they go to a church that is "rooted in the Bible" they should expect to be verbally bashed around a bit by the preacher, who will "bowl down your alley":

    In a message earlier in the day on Super Bowel Sunday Martin tweeted, "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."

    Rolls eyes* This is really not at all that offensive. Get over it. I'm all for gay rights and the movement to equality but to get suspended from your job for those very G quotes is taking it too far!



  31. 31

    Good riddance, brotha….coming from a minority himself, all the more disgusting it is….joke NOT funny considering how gays are treated in this world by the ignorant and uneducated…Heteros have to realize ANY joke that is anti-gay is NOT acceptable….and yes, perhaps he is so self-loathing he needs to make a group feel less than….sad….all anti-gay people really need to open their hearts and eyes: humans are humans AND are equal.



  32. 32

    Re: AttFinchRe: raypearson – Ray ray ray….there is no "gay agenda"!!!!! Why is it when defending gays OR standing up against bullying OR standing up against statements that are totally unacceptable, you think there is an "agenda"…..what is wanted is to be treated without being made to feel less than, to not be killed, to not be threatened or discriminated against, to not be fired from a job OR denied equal rights….What is so hard to understand…? Agenda? No, the desire to be treated like everyone else.

  33. @v@ says – reply to this


    33

    I thought he was using typical sitcom style macho-ness to joke chastise people for getting excited about 'damn underwear' and interpreted it to be poking at crass marketing consumerism. He would then have a point. No reference to gay anything here? How is this related to gays? It's underwear. I must be missing something.



  34. 34

    The reaction to this, is far bigger than the original comment. We've got to stop getting so personally put out by everything! We're going to go crazy!



  35. 35

    Uh, over reaction?? He saidf nothing about gays, did not use the F word; he only criticized the ad saying, essentially, it would not bring in the customers it thinks it will. As for the assertion that someone ought to be 'smacked' if the4y liked the commercial; would the same reaction have occured if he said it about Elton John's Pepsi ad?? I mean, c'mon, this is getting really ridicules. Hyper sensative radical liberal\gays are as bad as the Hyper sensative radical liberal\feminists were in the 70's. Maybe worse.



  36. 36

    This time you gay supporters have gone overboard…he didn't tweet any ant gay comment…he just said slap your friend if he says he like an underwear commercial at a superbowl party…That doesn't say hatred..It says your friend is wierd for loving underwear…YOu ahve all overreacted here…sad.sad.sad.



  37. 37

    "Real" men feel exactly like Roland. Queer men are offended. that's life deal with it because it will never change. This used to be a free country before the communist took office.



  38. 38

    Hmm….I see this more as, if someone you know is gonna buy underwear just because it"s "Becks" line, then they need to be smacked! Lol
    If you look HARD ENOUGH almost anything can be interpreted as non-pc.



  39. 39

    This is why i hate the LGBT..Love how those morons just dig themselves deeper and deeper



  40. 40

    Good. The guy is a loud mouth, ignorant prick. Hyperactive mouth with a brain that a toad would love. Seriously.. How did this asshole end up on TV? Oh yea.. its CNN. Nevermind. The ratings alone prove my point.



  41. 41

    Re: NookiesWA – If you look at this thread, most of gay people who have written, including myself, don't agree with this. We all think this was a severe overreaction, and Mr. Martin didn't mean to harm anyone. Who you should be angry at is CNN. Though, who are we kidding here: I don't anticipate you thinking logically, and you'll use this as just another reason to hate homosexuals.



  42. 42

    holy shit oversensitive much?



  43. 43

    Roland Martin is a pathetic REVERSE racist who has gotten away with it for years. And now CNN takes days to suspend him over violence-tinged homophobia??? WTF. This reverse racist / homophobe should be FIRED!



  44. 44

    Every group over-reacts to comments made by someone in the public eye who really should know better, especially if they are professional. It is really difficult to tell someone they have no right to be offended or insulted by a statement or comment from a public figure. He's lucky he only got suspended, because others have made statements were rude but not hateful (Don Imus: "nappy-headed ho's" about a black women's basketball team) and lost their job and the jobs of his entire radio show crew. Were those girls really offended, considering that they are called much worse things by members of their own community, including famous black stand-up comics? If you marginall insult blacks you will be fired and crucified, insult the gays and they'll never forget, say something anti-semetic and Hollywood will blacklist you. Don't worry, fat girls are still fair game.

    Re: sanfran1 – you like PEEREX are fucking GAY CENTRIC you both see the world through violet glasses. the only biased people i see here are YOU AND PEEREX



  46. 46

    Umm I don't see what the big deal was… Men's underwear ads are always weird to me… I really also don't think men are rushing out in droves to buy these underwear because of him. I do not find these tweets to be homophobic.. i really think people need to lighten up.. damn why do they take EVERYTHING so serious. I don't think an apology is necessary.



  47. 47

    ROLAND IS IN THE CLOSET!! HE'S ON THE DOWN LOW!! HE'S SO OBVS GAY!!



  48. 48

    Re: Be-Atch – EXACTLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-)



  49. 49

    IMO, gay white men are, as a group, the most hateful demographic in the country. They are extra scary for 2 reasons. 1) They shield themselves with this illogical (but effective nonetheless) proposal, "I'm from a victimized group so I can't possibly be a victimizer myself. 2) Gay white men are white. They have the power and resources to really unleash their hate. What's worse, white progressive women (another powerful group) don't keep an eye on them like they do heterosexual white men.



  50. 50

    No doubt in my mind Rowland has sexual identity issues and is in the closet as we speak.



  51. 51

    Re: actanonverbanow – You're an idiot.



  52. 52

    — LADY GAGA —



  53. 53

    if it was even english yes i would say he says something about smacking the ish out of dudes excited about underwear which is indeed wrong



  54. 54

    I'm all for gay rights I respect gay people but, Roland said nothing homophobic. Also why are people mentioning race here? Perez you need to start banning racist people on here, man.



  55. 55

    Re: actanonverbanow – I know you're joking. I don't see gay white males attack/killing minorities at all out of the blue. Or being pedophiles or having sex with animals. Or causing wars in the Middle East killing random people over there.

    And poor Macauley Culkin has cancer !
