While I see yum.log was mentioned, I didn't see mention of yum history.

If you type it (you have to use root or sudo), you get a history of your
yum transactoins.  So you might see something like

184 | update                   | 2016-08-20 16:48 | Update        

(Sorry if formatting is off). 
In your case, you might see 

185     install bad_font   |<date> |Install

You can then use

yum undo 185

This will undo the yum transaction that installed the font.

I realize you've solved your issue for the moment, but the history option
is quite useful.
