VIDEO: ¡Ask a Mexican! on Whether It's Homophobic to Chanto "Puto!" During Soccer Matches

Mexico is having a hell of a FIFA World Cup...and of course, something comes along to fuck it up. In this case, it's Mexican soccer fans, who just love to chant "¡Puto!" ("Faggot!") during a soccer match. In this week's video version of my ¡Ask a Mexican! column, I tackle the subject as if it were the fresa face of Chicharito.

One point I forgot to cover in my video: Mexican soccer fans are notoriously un-P.C., as evidenced by them chanting "Osama! Osama!" when the U.S. side played Mexico at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City back in 2004 and even more. Ah, Mexicans...enjoy!
