Miami Marlins Manager Ozzie Guillen was suspended today for five games after he made  controversial comments in favor of Cuba’s leader Fidel Castro.

According to ESPN, the Marlins said they “acknowledge the seriousness of the comments” and they cannot be taken lightly especially in a community where many former victims of his dictatorship reside.

Guillen said in an interview to Time Magazine that loves Castro and respects him for staying in power so long. Today, while apologizing, Guillen said he did not love Castro and said he was speaking in Spanish for the interview while thinking in English.

Major League Baseball is reportedly reviewing the situation also.
