I don't follow football (being a Palace fan soon stops that nonsense) but a HUGE bru ha ha has broken out about a satirical fanzine showing a cut out mask or something. Now I have no interest in such things, but the reaction is fascinating.
The Police have:
- Confiscated thousands of copies
- will take appropriate action against anyone either found selling this particular fanzine or provocatively displaying the image in public.
- anyone found wearing one will be required to remove it and hand it to police
Have we gone mad? It's a humorous image in a satirical magazine. Not one person has complained. All hell has broken loose because it is "potentially offensive".
The police's match commander, Ch Supt Mark Roberts, said: "Shortly before kick-off we were made aware that a Manchester United supporters' fanzine being sold outside Old Trafford featured a potentially offensive image.
God forbid anyone ever publishes a picture that might offend someone ever again. Fucking idiots.
