"free speech should be allowed whether it was tasteless or not"
He`s on company time in a company uniform.

Per wikipedia: "In Spain, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Venezuela and Cuba the word has a stronger meaning with a very negative emphasis"
Yunel Escobar is Cuban.

Presumably the team has a policy on racism and homophobia. Presumably he was aware of it.

Would it have been different if he had written "Tu ere negro"?

He plays for the Blue Jays...you know, a team from CANADA. Try and keep up. What would you have had done...jail time....a spanking? Yes, let`s make it illegal to call somebody a name!

Free Speech means you will not get arrested for saying stuff. It doesn`t mean you can say anything you want without consequences.

La Marica and Maricón have waaay different connotations being Maricón the most harsh of them

His response was basically, it wasn`t intended to be anti gay, and it might translate to something that can be taken to be anti gay, I should know better.. whatever Ill take the 3 games off.

He did something really stupid, but he`s getting slapped pretty hard for it! That ain`t no "slap on the wrist" he got.

What does it mean? "You are - a fag"?

@jendrian: When you call someone gay in an attempt to insult them you are essentially anti-gay.

Even more so when you use a slang word that has negative connotations.

Let him spend 24 hours in jail and see how he feels about gays.

Technically, "Maricon" doesn`t literally mean "gay" although it is used the same way we use "fag" or "fairy" it literally translates to calling someone a "Mary" - sort of like how you might call a sissy-boy a "Nancy" - In fact, Mexico National Team goalkeeper Memo Ochoa is often called "La Marica" (the Mary girl) by critics

I don`t think that`s actually "anti-gay".

It literally is calling someone a fag, nothing more than a buddy`s insult
