CNN Suspends Roland S. Martin For Homophobic Super Bowl Tweets

Roland S. Martin is about to have even more time to tweet. That’s because CNN announced this afternoon that Martin, a contributor to the network, has been suspended indefinitely following a pair of homophobic tweets he wrote during last Sunday’s Super Bowl (which, as BuzzFeed pointed out, were representative of a larger anti-gay pattern of his).

Here is CNN’s full statement, via Metro Weekly:
