And now, from the Homophobia in Sports department (via Gay Star News):
Just two months before Brazil hosts the FIFA World Cup, clothing stores are selling T-shirts calling soccer players 'faggots'. Sergio K, a Brazilian brand, have revealed several designs for football fans to wear during the June and July sporting season.
The simple T-shirt designs call Portuguese player Cristiano Ronaldo 'gay' and retired Argentine footballer Diego Maradona a 'maricón' (a faggot). The designer defends the T-shirts, which are being sold for around €62 ($85), as 'irreverent' and not offensive.
He is also claiming they are selling out in stores across the country.
In 2012, Toronto Blue Jays player Yunel Escobar was suspended for three games by Major League Baseball after he wore eye black during a game that had "TU ERE MARICON" ("You are a faggot") written on it.
An online petition has been launched calling on Sergio K to pull the jerseys from store shelves.
