NEW YORK - Major League Soccer (MLS) today amended their Don't Cross The Line Video to include the notice "Unless you have a truck load of money" after people pointed out that Major League Soccer's ownership group contains notable anti-gay figures like Philip Anschutz and Sheikh Mansour.
"We realized that we should make it plainly obvious that discrimination in any form is bad unless it is from our ownership group where they are actively contributing money towards homophobic agencies, or having policies to chemically castrate homosexuals or put them to death in their own country. If you have 100 million dollars that you are willing to give us, you can go on a racist, homophobic and gender biased rant that includes completely insane conspiracy theories about any number of nationalities. We don't care, just give us the money and make sure the check clears." said Director of MLS Owner Relations Jeremy Dubois.
"This video is part our attempt to connect with our progressive fans, part attempt to create a culture of tolerance and part our attempt to apologize for our ownership that has some serious flaws. I mean, what do you want us to do... NOT take 100 million dollars? Look you can concentrate on the cognitive dissonance of the Don't Cross the Line Video or you can watch Toronto native Rachel Bonnetta in a sombrero learning Spanish soccer slang."
