Florida Marlins’ coach under fire for praising Fidel Castro


He did an interview with Time magazine:

“I respect Fidel Castro,” Guillen said in the article. “You know why? A lot of people have wanted to kill Fidel Castro for the last 60 years, but that [expletive] is still here.”

The backlash:

Ozzie Guillen's wk: Told Time, "I love Castro" (apologized), sacrificed animal for Santeria, admitted he's nightly drunk at hotel, went 0-2
