DAVID BECKHAM SUBJECT TO HOMOPHOBIC ABUSE

It’s been a bad week for David beckham, professionally that is! Yellow cards, injuries, fights … wow … lots of negative energy around our champion! But unfortunately that’s what you get when people start to get jealous of you … stay strong David!

He was also subject to homophobic abuse during England match (picture above) In the 78th minute of Wednesday’s match in Seville the crowd started chanting “Beckham maricón” which means “Beckham faggot.” England’s black players have previously been targeted by racist Spanish fans during previous internationals.

The incident has been reported to FIFA and the English FA by GFSN. In England indecent or racist chanting is an offence under the Football Offences Act 1991 and carries a fine of up to £1,000 and a football banning order.

GFSN took part in the first conference of the European Gay and Lesbian Sports Federation on tackling homophobia in football earlier this week. “Homophobia is still rife in football and it as great to see so many different groups committed to doing something about it,” said Chris Basiurski, campaigns officer for the GFSN.

“It became obvious very quickly the UK has progressed further on this issue than the rest of Europe, mainly due to the cooperation of the English FA and we look forward to working with the other European gay football groups in the coming years.

“This week’s homophobic abuse of David Beckham at the Spain v England international highlights the need for action and in the long term we hope to show that such behaviour is not acceptable.” [Pink News]
