To fill you in, Martin posted on his Twitter over a week ago, “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”
As a result, he was suspended indefinitely and the gay community lashed out on the man, calling his remarks harmful.
However, his efforts were looked upon with favor.
Martin shared on a segment of his “Perspectives” his apology.
“This week in Los Angeles, I sat down with Herndon Graddick,” senior director of programs and communications at the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.
“And so we did…Over breakfast for over 90 minutes, Herndon shared his thoughts with regards to my tweets and why he deemed them offensive to the LGBT community, and I reiterated my apology that – that if anyone who construed my comment[s] as being anti-gay or homophobic, or advancing violence, that was not my intent, and for that I was truly sorry.
“It was a discussion that touched on many other areas, and as GLAAD expressed in a statement afterwards – and a sentiment with which I concur – ‘Both parties came away with a better understanding of one another and look forward to continuing this dialogue.’”
