Toronto Blue Jay shortstop in  stunning display of homophobia and insensitivity played Saturday’s game against the Boston Red Sox with the Spanish words “TU ERE MARICON” written on an eyeblack sticker, a black patch baseball players wear under their eyes to reduce the sun’s glare which translates into  “You are a faggot.”

The Blue Jays released a statement late Monday night saying they do not support discrimination “nor condone the message displayed by Yunel Escobar during Saturday’s game.”

“The club takes this situation seriously and is investigating the matter.”

Escobar, who has a history of wearing eyeblack with phrases written on top, did not play in Sunday’s game after the incident due to “flu-like symptoms.”
