Before a June 2006 game in Chicago, fiery White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen launched a profane public tirade about Chicago Sun-Times columnist Jay Mariotti, who had been critical of Guillen. "What a piece of [expletive] he is, [expletive] fag," said Guillen, who was hit with an undisclosed fine and ordered to undergo sensitivity training by commissioner Bud Selig. Guillen later told reporters, "One thing I'm going to make clear is I apologize to the [gay] community, but to Jay, no chance. This thing is on and on for good."
