This isn't some 17 year old rookie who just came over from Havana that really doesn't know better...
Having watched Yunel play and interact with the media for the last few years, it doesn't seem to me like he's integrated himself into this culture at all. He doesn't even attempt to speak English (or so it seems). Playing in a city like Toronto, with such a large Cuban population, also lets him stay in that bubble. I think he just really is that ignorant.
I don't really care though, I think you all are fags too so this type of thing doesn't bother me at all.
