Cristiano Ronaldo Faces Homophobic Slurs From Barcelona Fans

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo was once again the subject of homophobic bullying, this time at the hands of Barcelona fans.

The Telegraph reports:

If he was bothered by the slurs thrown at him by a small number of Barcelona supporters during a tense, see-sawing Clasico, in which Sergio Ramos maintained Real’s six-point advantage at the top of La Liga with a last-minute header, he had a curious way of showing it.

One section of fans at the Nou Camp baited him with a chant of “Cristiano, come out of the closet”, which could prompt a league investigation.

La Liga has promised to respond strongly to all reported instances of homophobia after Ronaldo was the target of similar abuse in the same match here last season.

Do better, fans.

Football is probably not popular in the US, but in the rest of the world it really is. And football tends to attract and reinforce very homophobic views. Even in countries like Spain which shows the highest levels of tolerance and acceptance towards homosexuality football is like a big ghetto where all troubled men reinforce and find justification for their aggressive attitudes. The "passion" for football is so animalistic that they sometimes even kill each other in stadiums.
