"Your dad washes elephants, your mother's a whore"

Tottenham Hotspur fans, reacting in disbelieve to how their team gets annihilated by Jose Mourinho’s Real Madrid in the first leg of the teams’ UEFA Champions League semi-final match, pull the race card:

Tottenham are unlikely to face any sanction from Uefa regarding the chants directed at [Emmanuel] Adebayor during the match in Spain. The visiting fans directed the same chants – “Your dad washes elephants, your mother’s a whore” – at Adebayor when he was playing for their north London rivals, Arsenal, for more than three seasons. Tottenham admitted that the chants were offensive but denied they were racist.

But Uefa confirmed that there was “nothing in the [match] delegate’s report” that would initiate an investigation into the abuse, so unless the governing body received notification of an offence from stadium security or the police, Spurs will not be charged. Regarding the chant, a Tottenham spokesperson said: “[It] has been previously discussed with the Crown Prosecution Service, who do not consider it racist.”
