Football Fans Chant Antigay Slurs

Ohio: A Novel

Fans of a high school football team in Eastlake, Ohio, have been caught on video taunting a rival team with an antigay chant, calling them "powder blue faggots."

According to WKYC-TV, Heather Ike, a 1999 graduate of North High School in the Willoughby-Eastlake School District, caught her alma mater's fans using the chant against South High School players, who wear light blue uniforms. She posted the video on YouTube.

WKYC-TV reports that Willoughby-Eastlake Superintendent Keith Miller called the chants "completely unacceptable" and vowed to look into the incident and possibly suspend the students.

Students said the antigay chants have been used for years by both teams.
