Saw this on ESPN the found it on YouTube. Very clear that his genuine sentiment was the before not the after. Tired of the "that's not who I am". Because if that was true you wouldn't be apologizing. Apologize for who you are. That's where you start.Banner year in Major League Baseball. No player suspensions for the Astros and Red Sox, a labor dispute prior to starting an abbreviated season, players disregarding safety protocols and causing COVID-19 outbreaks, a Nazi salute, shaming young players for launching dingers, and now some causally hot mic bigotry followed by a “sincere apology” interrupted by a home run call...
The fact he so nonchalantly used a slur during his job leads me to believe this is a regular occurrence.
For the record I use the word "fag" all the time in the privacy of my own home. Never used it at work. Never used it in public. Never used it to demean a gay person. A fag amongst me and my personal company are soft, whiny, bitchy, males. Including little boys. Girls are brats. Boys are fags. That's how it's used in the privacy of my home. It's an amateur move to use language like that at work. That means you're way too comfortable.
He should lose his job for being that comfortable. If I was his boss, I don't want my employees that comfortable.
