Ligue 1: Amazon blocks the rebroadcast of the OL-OM match because of homophobic chants

It is impossible to rewatch the match between Olympique Lyonnais and Olympique de Marseille which took place on Sunday, at the end of the 20th day of Ligue 1. On the broadcaster's platform, Amazon Prime Video, the match appears GOOD. But upon clicking to access it, the following message appears: “Due to events advocating hatred, violence or discrimination against a person or group of people during the match, the replay of this match is not available. »

The match, won by OL (1-0), was marked by numerous homophobic chants, which were particularly audible. OM supporters were banned from traveling to Groupama Stadium. “Marseille, Marseille, we love you…” were chanted during the match. According to So Foot, Amazon removed the match from its platform for fear that associations fighting against homophobia would file a complaint.

The broadcaster had already been the subject of a complaint for these reasons after PSG-OM last September, a match whose rebroadcast was not so promptly removed from the platform. The complainants had stressed that “in the case of live broadcast of content, the publication director is not responsible for the comments”, but that this did not apply in the case of a replay. So Foot specifies that Amazon is working to hide these chants in order to re-offer the meeting in its entirety on its platform.
