ARLINGTON, Texas -- Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen on Monday addressed the anti-gay slur used by the Chicago Bulls' Joakim Noah and subsequent $50,000 fine.

Guillen was fined and ordered to undergo sensitivity training for using a similar slur in 2006 while referring to former Chicago Sun-Times columnist Jay Mariotti.

Calling it "a mistake you regret," Guillen also said that the person who irritated Noah in the first place should be investigated.
