An Argentine television station aired live from Qatar a racist song sung by Argentine supporters against the players of the French squad, and Kylian Mbappé in particular.
Reports state that the song interrupted the transmission, and an embarrassed journalist asked that the song be “censored” after realising what the lyrics said.
According to further accounts, the journalist left the group of fans he was interacting with in a video that rapidly became popular on social media.
In the video, the Argentines claimed that almost every member of Didier Deschamps’ side is an African while chanting what looks to be a racist song against the French national team’s players.
TyC Sports, an Argentine sports station, broadcast the fans live from Qatar.
At 2018, when France defeated Argentina 4-3 in the World Cup, Kylian Mbappe scored twice and provided an assist. It seems that this hasn’t been forgotten by the Argentine fans.
Fans of Argentina sang: “Spread the word, they play in France but are all from Angola. How beautiful, they are going to run.
“They like transvestites like that wh*re Mbappé. His mother is Nigerian, his father is Cameroonian, but on the document, he has French nationality.”
