Following his suspension from CNN over controversial (and some would argue, homophobic) tweets, Roland Martin is meeting with gay advocacy group GLAAD to smooth things over. “I look forward to meeting with GLAAD in the near future and having a productive dialogue,” Martin tweeted. The Chicago Tribune reports:
NEW YORK (TheWrap.com) – CNN commentator Roland Martin has agreed to meet with GLAAD following his suspension Wednesday for tweets during the Super Bowl that the group and others denounced as homophobic.
Calling Martin’s tweets “regrettable and offensive,” CNN said Martin would “not be appearing on our air for the time being.” Martin later said on Twitter that he would meet with GLAAD, as the group had requested, after he apologized Tuesday for the Super Bowl tweets.
“I look forward to meeting with GLAAD in the near future and having a productive dialogue,” he tweeted.
The group tweeted back, “We look forward to a productive dialogue and to working together as well.”
