Fans of Chelsea Football Club have defied a warning from their own club, and have been filmed singing crude antisemitic chants whilst riding the London Underground. According to footage provided to the Daily Mirror, Chelsea fans chanted “I’ve got a foreskin, haven’t you? F***ing Jew!” The supporters can be seen singing both on the train and as they walk through a station.
The antisemitic chanting follows a match between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, at which Chelsea specifically warned that if any of their supporters engaged in antisemitic abuse, the club would seek to identify them and report them to the police.
Following the conviction of a Chelsea fan earlier this month, we are hopeful that the club will repeat its success in this case too.
