San Francisco Giants workforce president Farhan Zaidi slammed an Arizona city councilman who mocked George Floyd at an anti-mask rally.
Scottsdale City Council member Man Phillips invoked Floyd at a rally Wednesday. He chanted “I can’t breathe!” earlier than ripping off his face masks. He was main a crowd of about 200 protesters who held an anti-mask rally because the state was seeing a spike in coronavirus numbers.

Zaidi, whose workforce has a spring coaching facility in Scottsdale, didn’t mince phrases when speaking about Phillips in an interview with The Athletic.
“I mean, f—k that guy,” he advised the outlet. “You can quote me on that. F—k that guy.”

Whereas Phillips issued an apology, Zaidi stated he didn’t purchase it.
“I think anyone would have difficulty getting beyond the abhorrent insensitivity of his statement,” Zaidi advised The Athletic. “But even if you can get beyond that — the fact that this guy is condoning behavior that put our staff and players at risk? Like, seriously. F—k that guy. I can’t believe that that guy is a public official in this country. It’s unbelievable.”
Zaidi added that there may very well be some repercussions over Phillips’ remark.
“I don’t know how you could watch that and not be angry about it,” he stated. “And angry may be too simple a term. As for what recourse we have, I wouldn’t want to speak to that. But I’m f—king pissed about it. And I know I speak for a lot of people when I say that.”
