The Ligue 1 football match between Metz and Paris SG was interrupted for three minutes after the deployment of a banner deemed homophobic by the Ultras Messin, in full debate over the insults launched from the stands.
"LFP, PSG, let me sing you, go do you in …., I will not go on TV, because my words are not very gay," wrote the supporters Moselle, referring to the Angela's song "Balance your what". This is the first time that a match of the PSG is interrupted for this reason, two days after the interruption of the match Nice-Marseille.
Two days after Nice-Marseille
This is the first time that a PSG match is interrupted for songs or homophobic remarks, two days after the interruption of the game Nice-Marseille. The meeting was stopped 12 minutes Wednesday after the launch in the stands of the refrain, homophobic character, "The Marseillais is p …".
In the wake, the South Brigade of Nice had multiplied the provocative banners and playing on the words, first with the message: "Welcome to the group Ineos, Nice also we love the pedal", this last word written in letters arc- as the flag of the LGBT community. A judicial inquiry was opened by the Nice public prosecutor's office.
Since the first interruption of a match in France for homophobic songs, in Nancy on August 16 – which earned the Lorraine club a suspension from his Piantoni tribune Wednesday–, the French grandstands seem caught in a gear of escalation and provocation.
