      Actually, it’s more like “You’se a fagot.”

      Why is there no “s” in “eres”? He misspelled “eres.” didn’t he? Or is “ere” some new slang word I just haven’t heard before?

      Anyway, this homophobic scrawling is inexcusable. He needs to be punished by the Blue Jays. If a player had scrawled “You are a spic” under his eyes, you can bet he would have been thrown off the team by now.

      @hephaestion: Many Cubans tend to omit the final “S” in words when speaking Spanish.

      Omitting the final “s” when speaking aside, dude should check his grammar before spewing the hate.

      “Someone wrote it on my face as a joke.” Ya. Right. About as believable as my 12 year-old protestation, “They’re not my cigarettes. I was holding them for a friend!” This man is a professional athlete, making $5 million a year to play baseball. He’s a role model to young children (I don’t get the whole “role model” thing but…) and this kind of attention is the last thing the Blue Jays needs. Their fans are loyal in spite of the fact that they suck (not in the good way either…) but they don’t take kindly to this kind of hatefulness.

      If he was a Gay Inc. tool like Dan Savage, nobody would’ve cared.

      @Rob: Huh?? In order for you to draw the type of parallel you’re attempting to draw, you need to make it a logical parallel: So, if Dan Savage wrote on his face “You’re a nigger” or “You’re a kyke” or some other such offensive thing, I think people would be pretty pissed off. And rightly so.

      silly people, unless he can write backwards while looking in a mirror, it is clear that his make up person wrote this and perhaps it was a person message to him.

      @funboync: You must have missed the part where it said they come on a strip and you can write on them yourself before applying.
