“TU ERE MARICON”. If my San Diego public school education serves me right, that Spanish phrase translates to “You’re a faggot.”
I’m baffled. Escobar let someone write “You’re a faggot” on his eye black. He undoubtedly looked in the mirror and agreed with his face (Which creates a hilarious level of irony). Then he proceeded to go out in public and give every single person he looked at a double-cheeked middle finger.
In a society sensitive to these types of slurs, and in a league with a very large number of Spanish speaking players, Escobar doesn’t deserve to be one of them.
