Blue Jays shortstop Yunel Escobar allegedly had gay slur written on eye black [photo]

Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Yunel Escobar is BOLD. Escobar thought it would be a good idea to wear eye black with a gay slur written in Spanish on Saturday when the Blue Jays faced off against the Red Sox.

Of course the 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 Blue Jays said in a statement Monday night, adding the club “takes this situation seriously and is investigating the matter.”

My spanish is a little rusty but loosely translated, I believe he’s saying “you’re a f***ot.” I mean… 1. Did he not believe that people can read spanish and 2. WHYYYYYYYY.

Escobar was expected to be available to the media later today, maybe he has some sort of explanation.
