The Toronto Blue Jays suspended Yunel Escobar for three games on Tuesday after he wore eye-black tape inscribed with a homophobic slur during Saturday’s game at the Rogers Centre. Escobar’s lost pay will be donated to Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, and he will undergo sensitivity training.
“I don’t have anything against homosexuals. I have friends that are gay,” Escobar said at a news conference through a translator.
“The person who decorates my house is gay, the person who cuts my hair is gay”
