This Gringo lived in Miami for over 10 years. Praising Castro is as bad as Blasphemy! Some things you just don’t say. Many Cuban-Americans lost family members and friends under the Castro Dictatorship!
He basically called him a tough son of a bitch. That's offensive high praise? Even the Cuban refugees who hate him know that is fact, and "son of a bitch" isn't terribly supportive.
His apology will work when and only when Jorge Mas-Candosa says it is good.
If it doesn’t pass muster on Calle Ocho then he has to go!
