Houston Astros Player Yuli Gurriel Makes Racist Gesture

Houston Astros player Yuli Gurriel made a slant-eyed racist gesture towards Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Yu Darvish, who is Japanese, during Game 3 of the World Series on Oct. 27.

Gurriel, who is from Cuba, made the gesture while sitting in the dugout in the bottom of the second inning.

After the Astros won Game 3, Gurriel apologized and admitted using the Spanish word “Chinito,” a demeaning slang word for Asians, notes The New York Times.
