Former White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen was suspended five games on Tuesday for his controversial remarks regarding longtime Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. At a press conference today in Miami, Guillen apologized for his comments.
"I’m sorry that I have hurt a city, a country, a community, without any intention. But I did it. … I feel like I’ve betrayed my Latin community. I’m here to say I’m sorry with my heart and my hips. I want to say sorry to all those people who were hurt directly or indirectly. Especially to the Cuban-Americans in Miami."
The Miami fanbase is largely made up of Cuban-Americans and many media members believe this is the worst thing for Guillen to say given the long track record of human rights atrocities committed by Castro and his regime.
