FIFA Chief Says Gays Should Not Have Sex in Qatar

At a press conference yesterday, Sepp Blatter, the head of FIFA (the organization responsible for the World Cup) joked about concerns that Qatar (the host for the 2022 World Cup) is deeply homophobic.

When asked how gay fans could visit the country for the event, Blatter joked,

I would say they should refrain from any sexual activities.

With that in mind, please know that Qatar punishes homosexuality with five years in jail and a number of lashes.

Mr. Blatter owes the gay community a sincere apology, and FIFA needs to address this issue directly.
