A member of the Toronto Blue Jays has stirred up a lot of controversy over a homophobic slur.

Shortstop Yunel Escobar appeared for Saturday’s game against Boston wearing the message on his eye blacks, which are the patches that players wear under their eyes to cut down on sun glare.   It’s unclear why Escobar had the message printed in Spanish on the blacks.  He’s expected to answer that question during a news conference today ahead of the Jays’ three game series against the New York Yankees in the Bronx.  

The Blue Jays have issued a statement saying they don’t condone any kind of discrimination. The league is now investigating.
