If a dude at your Super Bowl party is hyped about David Beckham's H&M underwear ad, smack the ish out of him! #superbowl— rolandsmartin (@rolandsmartin) February 6, 2012
If you talk to me you know I don't really watch cable news because to me they're all too biased to trust though if I watch one I usually watch Fox News as they're the most neutral in my opinion (I prefer my local news, FOX 13 WTVT). But this bugs me.
I don't get the big fuss, it was a joke, or at least that's how it struck me and gathering from the evidence, that's how he meant it.
For the record here's the commercial he's referring to:
Getting past the amount of of women swooning at that. I just don't get the outrage. I think this is political correctness gone awry. There's no doubt offensive things have been said towards the LGBT community, however I don't think this is one of them. I think GLAAD should be ashamed of themselves for not recognizing it as a joke and letting it slide. They should further be ashamed for feeding the controversy fire. Same for CNN.
As for the people who see this as offensive, "r u srs bruh"?! It was a joke, get over yourself. There are more important things to worry about. If you don't think it's funny, turn the other cheek and walk away. If you think it's funny, laugh a little and move on.
I condemn this suspension. I don't like he's being suspended for a joke. It just feels like free speech is slowly dying, you can't say a dang thing in this world anymore without someone taking offense and someone expecting an apology.
He did nothing wrong. End of story.
