As French teams await for the resumption of the French Football league (Ligue 1), a Brazilian LGBT activist has filed a lawsuit against Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) forward Neymar Jr for “homophobia and incitement to hatred.” The LGBT activist, Agripino Magalhaes, filed a complaint against the Brazilian footballer at the Sao Paulo prosecutor’s office after the footballer called his mother’s boyfriend a “little fag**t.” Neymar threw the insult after his mother’s boyfriend revealed he was bisexual, according to the French Press Agency (AFP). The homophobic language went public following the leak of a voice message the Brazilian star had sent to his friends. Neymar’s mother, 52-year-old Nadine Goncalves, made her relationship with the young man public shortly before the homophobia row, reported the same source.
