Tottenham fan and comedian David Baddiel has ripped into some West Ham fans after a viral video emerged.

The video appears to show Hammers fans on a plane singing an antisemitic song towards an orthodox Jew.

The Irons have strongly condemned the song, and Baddiel doesn’t think it had anything to do with football and was purely an antisemitic chant aimed at the man in the video [Guardian].

Weird that what’s meant to be a song about Spurs is directed just generally at a Jew. Almost as if it is straightforwardly antisemitic. https://t.co/FUZ7alrctf

Writing on his Twitter account, he said: “Weird that what’s meant to be a song about Spurs is directed just generally at a Jew. Almost as if it is straightforwardly antisemitic.”

Horrible stuff from those involved.

The truth is it is 2021, and we still have people who think that this sort of behaviour is acceptable when it really isn’t.

They might claim that the song is about Tottenham, but they started singing it and directing it to a bloke who is clearly an orthodox Jew.

There was no indication that he was a Spurs fan or that he even liked football, so this was a purely antisemitic chant, and the people involved have to be punished.

These fans are not people who we want involved with football because they make all of the other Irons supporters look bad.

Several of the people involved are easily identifiable as they don’t have masks on and feature in the video for quite some time.

Therefore, it will be intriguing to see what sort of action the Hammers take, and it should be the right and proper punishment for these individuals.
