High school football 'faggot' chant

New, 18 comments

Students at North High School in East Lake, Ohio, face suspension after their anti-gay chant at a football game was caught on tape. The fans chanted "Powder blue faggots" at Willoughby South, whose uniform is light blue.

"It is completely unacceptable and we will look at the video and see if we can identify students and they could be suspended," says Willoughby-Eastlake Superintendent Keith Miller.

Interestingly, the American flag in the background looks to be at half-mast, an eerie homage to the gay students who have killed themselves in recent weeks. Video of the chant after the jump.
