That’s about the politest way to put it.
In 2006, while manager of the Chicago White Sox, Guillen employed an anti-gay slur in reference to then Chicago Sun-Times columnist, Jay Mariotti. Grant it, there are a lot of reasons to have at it with Jay Mariotti. Nonetheless, when you represent a brand, this isn’t an option. Guillen promptly issued an apology to the gay community...
