When asked how gay soccer fans are supposed to feel about the 2022 World Cup being held in a country where homosexuality is a crime, FIFA chairman Sepp Blatter said yesterday, “I would say they should refrain from any sexual activities.”But don’t worry! ” “We are living in a world of freedom,” he added, and discrimination shouldn’t be a problem in Qatar, where those gay fans are not welcome.

Blatter was apparently “joking” as the comment was preceded by a bout of laughter, but soccer fanatics already enraged by FIFA’s recent decisions won’t find it funny.
