Paris city hall, mayor launch legal action after PSG fans targeted her with sexist insults

Paris city hall is taking legal action after sections of Paris Saint-Germain fans targeted mayor Anne Hidalgo with sexist insults and homophobic chants during a French league match amid a bitter feud over the club’s future at its home stadium. Hidalgo will also lodge a complaint in her own name. The matter will also be referred to the French soccer league’s disciplinary committee, Paris city hall said in a statement. PSG fans displayed a number of banners targeting Hidalgo during PSG’s 3-1 win against Lille at the Parc des Princes last week.
