Torii Hunter calls reporter a 'prick' for question about gay marriage (VIDEO)

The return of Torii Hunter to the Minnesota Twins got off to a rough start at his introductory press conference Wednesday after a reporter asked Hunter about his view on gay marriage.

Hunter — who once said that having a gay teammate would be "difficult and uncomfortable" and recently criticized gay marriage in a political candidate's ad — bristled at St. Paul Pioneer Press writer Mike Berardino's hot topic question and called him a "prick" — four times!
