FIFA boss Sepp Blatter has joked that gay people ‘should refrain from sexual activities’ at the 2022 Qatar World Cup.
The president of football’s international governing body was speaking at a news conference in South Africa, arranged to discuss the legacy of this year’s tournament.
He was asked what he would say to gay football fans who want to go to Qatar for the 2022 competition, given that homosexuality is banned in the Middle East country.
Grinning, he said, ‘I would say they should refrain from any sexual activities.’
Mr Blatter went on to insist that he believed discrimination would not be an issue in Qatar by 2022, saying ‘we are living in a world of freedom’.
Buford Balony says: If Blatter believes discrimination won’t be an issue, he is stupider than everyone already thinks.
