Atlanta United sternly respond to homophobic chants from their fans
The atmosphere in Atlanta was great, except for this part
MLS newcomers Atlanta United have responded to the homophobic slur chanted by a portion of fans during the club’s innaugural match on Sunday against the New York Red Bulls.
During the 2-1 defeat, fans of the club could be heard saying the anti-gay slur.
According to ESPNFC, Atlanta responded strongly.
“We strive to foster a positive, enthusiastic and inclusive environment for all fans, and inappropriate chants have no place at our matches,” the team said in a statement, per ESPN FC.
“Atlanta United does not support or condone the use of offensive language. Fans found to be participating in this behavior will be subject to removal from the building.”
Obviously, there is no place for anything anti-gay in the soccer world, and it’s good to see Atlanta swiftly address the problem. Here’s hoping it stops here and the fans don’t do it again, or if they do, for them to be banned.
