Blue Jays’ Kevin Pillar Calls Atlanta Braves Pitcher a ‘Fag’ After Striking Out: WATCH

Kevin PillarToronto Blue Jays center fielder Kevin Pillar called Atlanta Braves pitcher Jason Motte a “fag” from home plate after Motte struck him out during the seventh inning during Wednesday’s game.

Wrote CBS Sports: “You didn’t have to be a professional lip reader to see that Pillar appeared to say the six-letter gay slur that starts with the letter ‘f.’”

Pillar responded to questions about the slur following last night’s game:

“It was immature. It was stupid. It was uncalled for. It’s part of the game. It’s…I’m a competitive guy. You know, heat of the moment. Obviously I’m going to do whatever I need to do to reach out and apologize. He didn’t do anything wrong. It was on me.”

Watch:

Major League Baseball is investigating the slur.
