Former baseball superstar Sammy Sosa is finally clapping back at those who criticize his lighter skin tone.
In a profile for Sports Illustrated, Sosa said, “Look at what I am today. This is my life, and I don't take garbage from nobody. I do whatever I want.”
After retiring in 2007, Sosa is now living in the United Arab Emirates with his wife, Sonia Rodriguez, and their six kids. His son Sammy Jr. commented on the criticism, saying, “It doesn't affect him, but I'm sure he feels a certain way. Like, 'Man, I gave so many years and so much hard work for you guys, and now you want to undermine all that because of some decisions I'm making — some personal decisions that don't affect you at all?”
