The White Sox returned home from a seven-day road trip with an ugly five-game losing streak in hand.
And executive vice president Kenny Williams reached his breaking point, but not for matters on the field.
While walking through the clubhouse before Tuesday's game against the AL Central rival Detroit Tigers, Williams heard some profane lyrics blaring through the clubhouse stereo.

Williams apologized to a reporter in the clubhouse and asked a team employee to turn off the stereo, according to Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune.
“That’s what Dr. Dre invented headphones for,” Williams said. “You have a right to listen to whatever you want, but if you’re infringing upon someone’s religious beliefs, or offending someone with the racial or sexual undertones of some of these songs … What’s right is right. And all the people who are upset with me, I don’t really care.”
Williams' message was heard loud and clear by his club who have rattled off two straight games since #StereoGate.
Of course headphones have been around well before Beats by Dre.'s launch in 2006, but we're pretty sure Williams was just trying to relate to the team's young players and didn't fall on deaf ears.
