Blue Jays shortstop Yunel Escobar wore the offensive Spanish phrase "Tu ere maricon" in his eye black Saturday. Yes, we're still shaking our heads and scrunching up our eyes over the complete friggin' stupidity that this man child must possess. For the English readers, that translates into "You are faggot."
MLB is investigating. "The Toronto Blue Jays do not support discrimination of any kind nor condone the message displayed by Yunel Escobar during Saturday's game," the team stated on its website. "The club takes this situation seriously and is investigating the matter." So, at least there's that.
*Update, it is only a gay slur.
