West Ham fans have been accused of homophobic chanting during their win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

The Hammers LGBT fan group Pride of Irons say supporters were singing “Chelsea Rent Boys” - and the Chelsea Supporters Trust agreed it was “continuous” during the 1-0 away victory. Pride of Irons insist the chant is homophobic and Kick It Out have asked anyone that heard it to contact them directly. “Having spoken to Chelsea Pride to get the details of yesterday’s homophobic chanting, we understand that West Ham fans were chanting “Chelsea Rent Boys”,” Pride Of Irons tweeted.

“Whether you think this is homophobic or not, Kick It Out have made it clear that it is. When you use homophobic chants you aren’t abusing most Chelsea fans who will be straight, but all gay fans whether they support Chelsea or West Ham,” it added.
