Hammers’ LGBT fan group Pride of Irons claimed supporters were singing “Chelsea Rent Boys” on Stamford Bridge – and the Chelsea Supporters Trust agreed it was “continuous.”
Stonewall’s sports director told Robbie de Santos Sky Sports News: “[With] this particular song many people say they don’t understand what is meant by the song.
“That doesn’t make it apologetic, but it shows that some of the solutions to stop this singing is to make sure people understand what the implications of the word rent boy actually mean.”
United came in three points from the Blues after the win over Stamford Bridge.
