Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen has received huge volumes of negative press and publicity over comments he recently made regarding former Cuban dictator, Fidel Castro.

Gillen told Time Magazine that, “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—–r is still here.”

Guillen, who is a native Venezuelan, a country that is currently known for their outspoken “president” Hugo Chavez, made the comments at probably the worst time, and the worst place to make such comments. Miami, home to several hundred thousand Cubans, is of course home to the Marlins. Obviously, Guillen didn’t put the pieces together when making his comments, causing many to boycott the team until Guillen is fired. Even organizations such as the Florida Hispanic Legislative Caucus called for, “punitive measures” against Guillen.

Guillen apparently wants to make amends for his comments, but judging by the reaction of people in the Miami area, the damage is already done.

Check out his first apology below.

Do you accept his apology? What do you think?
