Ozzie Guillen apologizes for Fidel Castro comments

Ozzie Guillen had to clarify himself after the outspoken Miami Marlins manager’s mouth got him into trouble once again, this time for remarks about former Cuban leader Fidel Castro.

In a recent Time magazine story, Guillen is quoted as saying, “I respect Fidel Castro. You know why? A lot of people have wanted to kill Fidel Castro for the last 60 years, but that mother****** is still here.”

Given where Guillen now manages and that region’s large Cuban population, his comments come off as especially controversial.

“I am sure I’m against (the way) he thinks, the way he treats people and way he treats his country for a long time,” Guillen said, according to the Palm Beach Post. “I’m against that 100 percent. I’m not crazy or stupid or ignorant to say I love somebody. He not just hurt Cuban people he hurt a lot of people counting Venezuelans.

“Whoever got hurt or misunderstood or (took it) the way he wants to take it, I will apologize. I will apologize if I hurt somebodies feelings. I am against everything, 100 percent, why this man has been treating people for the last 60 years.

“I said I respect this man because … I respect Obama, I respect Chavez because I always respect people. Meanwhile I disagree 100 percent what this is doing to the country.”

So, to recap, Ozzie Guillen: hates Bobby Valentine, respects Castro.
