Liverpool football club has condemned “inappropriate and offensive” chants from fans during their match against Chelsea on April 14th. Fans were heard chanting “Chelsea rent boys” during the match, despite a push to clamp down on homophobic language. The club claims to be highly concerned about this language, which they believe to be offensive and totally inappropriate. They urged fans to treat each other with respect, no matter what club they support, because Liverpool is an inclusive club and it does not tolerate any hate. “As a proud member of Stonewall’s Diversity Champions program, we are committed to LGBT equality across all areas of the club, and have contacted them and our own affiliated LGBT group Kop Outs for further support, ” their statement concluded. A spokesperson for Chelsea said: “We welcome Liverpool FC’s acknowledgement of homophobic chants from home supporters at the game and their commitment to rid such sentiment from their stadium.”
