Over An LGBT Shirt, A US Journalist Was Detained At A World Cup Stadium.

On November 21, an American journalist named Grant Wahl was held for wearing a shirt with a rainbow on it to show support for the LGBTQ community.

Journalist Grant Wahl, who runs a Substack covering soccer and formerly wrote for Sports Illustrated, revealed via his verified handle that he was not allowed into the stadium for Monday’s US-Wales 2022 World Cup match because of his shirt.

Following his resistance, he was then detained for over an hour before being led to the media center.

Wahl’s shirt bore an illustrative rainbow design which is considered the pride colour of the LGBTQ community.

Wahl tweeted that he was told: “You have to change your shirt. It’s not allowed.”

Later in the day, Wahl tweeted an update, saying he was “OK, but that was an unnecessary ordeal”.

He wrote: “Am in the media center, still wearing my shirt. Was detained for nearly half an hour. Go gays.:

Earlier on Monday, Nov. 21, FIFA threatened European team captains with automatic yellow cards for wearing a “OneLove” armband, as they had planned to do, leading England’s Harry Kane to back down and wear a FIFA-sanctioned armband instead.
