West Ham fans mock racist Chelsea with video

Published Add your comment

The recent incident with Chelsea fans on the Paris Metro has sparked debate about English football’s attitude to racism and whether Premier League clubs need to do more to punish fans who are guilty of such crimes – it also gives rival fans a chance to make fun of the Blues.

Before Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie, footage emerged from the underground system in the French capital showing a black man being stopped from boarding a train by a group of fans.

Said Chelsea fans were then heard to be chanting “we’re racist and that’s the way we like it” in the video, captured by a English man who lives in Paris as the train was waiting to move out of the station.

Now, supporters of London rivals West Ham have leapt on the chance to make fun of the men filmed in Paris by doing a video tutorial on how to let a black man on a train. Famous people, such as Hammers fan and professional mouth Russell Brand, reacted very well to the video on Twitter…

While one must always be careful not to risk making light of an issue as serious as racism, we at GMS think this video is good way to mock the Neanderthals on that Paris train and their hopelessly pathetic clinging to some sense of superiority through the colour of their skin.

London’s Metropolitan Police confirmed at the weekend they had contacted three men suspected of being part of the group in the video from Paris and released pictures of said men. They have been contacted by police but are unable to be arrested owing to the incident taking place outsider of the country.
