15. Caught on Camera
Soccer fans have a reputation for appalling behavior. Chelsea played Lille in a 2019 Champion’s League game when some of their supporters proceeded to let the team down badly. They went into a bar and began giving Nazi salutes and hissed to imitate the sound of a gas chamber. A Lille fan described his fear in the bar to the BBC because the behavior was so abhorrent.
He wasn’t the only person who felt disgusted by their actions. Little did the fans know that their actions were caught on camera. Later, the BBC showed them in full light as part of an expose on fan hooliganism and racism in soccer. Other Chelsea supporters racially abused a man on a train who was just going about his daily business. He wasn’t even a soccer supporter.
