Chelsea Fans Shove a Man Off a Train Because He’s Black Shouting, “We’re racist, we’re racist and that’s the way we like it”

Avid soccer fans boarding a subway on their way to a soccer game prevented a black man from boarding while shouting racist rhetoric, according to video footage obtained by The Guardian.

The video shows an unidentified man, who was travelling alone, attempting to board the train before being forcefully pushed back by multiple men, purportedly Chelsea supporters. The man and the crowd exchanged words as he unsuccessfully tried boarding the metro a number of times.

Fans are later heard shouting, “We’re racist, we’re racist and that’s the way we like it” in unison. The man eventually walked away and seemingly attempted to board the train at another door when the citizen-shot video cut off.

On Wednesday, UEFA released a statement on the situation, courtesy of BBC’s Richard Conway:
French police confirmed that they were investigating the incident on Wednesday, according to ITV.
French journalist Peter Allen reported that Chelsea fans involved in the chanting could face three years in prison and a €45,000 fine, according to prosecutors.

Chelsea has requested that witnesses of the incident come forward anonymously.

This is far from the only incident involving Chelsea fans in Paris. Oliver Todd of the Daily Mail reported French police were forced to use teargas on upward of 200 supporters who were trying to force their way into Parc des Princes after the match started.

Chelsea were in Paris for the first leg of their round of 16 Champions League match with PSG on Tuesday. The two international powers tied 1-1. Chelsea are scheduled to host PSG at Stamford Bridge for the second leg on March 11.

None of the men in the video have been identified at this time.

I’m shocked no one attempted to stop this including the person taking video of the whole thing.
