Friday, August 30, the meeting of Ligue 1 football between Metz and Paris Saint-Germain was interrupted during three minutes after deploying a banner deemed homophobic by the Ultras Messins, in full debate on the insults launched from the tribunes.
"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 Song of Angela "Balance your what". A message that followed insulting chants addressed to the National League ("The League, we're going to …") before the kickoff, this time starting the turn is.
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. 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 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 rainbow letters as the flag of the LGBT community.
Then by unfolding another banner on which one could read: "LFP / Instance: full parking for stadiums more gay", gay also written in rainbow letters. 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.
