Organizaciones LGBT y sus aliados exigen que FIFA responda a la homofobia en el futbol

GLAAD unió a varias organizaciones de comunidades lesbianas, gay, bisexuales y transgénero (LGBT) de los EE.UU., México, Argentina y Europa para enviar una carta abierta dirigida a FIFA pidiendo que tomen concretas acciones en contra de la homofobia en el futbol, algo que FIFA no hizo durante la Copa Mundial. Aunque los acuerdos de FIFA indican que fans que expresan palabras o comportamiento discriminatorio serían expulsados, la organización no hizo nada cuando los fans cantaron la palabra despectiva "puto" durante los juegos entre México vs Cameroon y México vs Brasil. Inclusive, cuando FARE (una organización contra el racismo en el futbol en Europa) pidió una investigación formal del uso de esta palabra anti-gay por los fans, FIFA concluyó que "la palabra no era ofensiva en este contexto." FIFA tomo esta decisión aunque muchos incluyendo Conapred, la agencia anti-discriminación de México ha dicho que la palabra si es ofensiva y dañina.
