Re. Kevin Pillar’s actions last night

May 18, 2017

Obviously, I don’t know Kevin Pillar personally. But from what I’ve seen and heard, he’s a good person who carries himself well. Sadly, he did something last night that was very stupid and disappointing. 

He needs to be held accountable for his actions. The consequence should be a suspension and fine. I understand how it was “the heat of the moment” and frustration. We – as human beings – know what that feels like. Nevertheless, that is no excuse for a homophobic slur. 

In the meantime, Pillar has issued an apology; so has the team. It is a good step forward. 

What happened last night was regrettable. Fortunately, Pillar has acknowledged his error and owned up to it. I am sure he will accept a suspension, take any sensitive training that’s offered and make amends through charitable and community service endeavours. 

I am still glad he plays for the Blue Jays and hope the success he’s had continues. I also hope Pillar will learn from his poor decision and build from it in a positive manner.
