LEEDS United are investigating after a QPR fan claimed to have filmed a supporter calling his dad a “smelly p***” and gesturing offensively.

A disturbing video posted to Twitter appears to show a white man with a flatcap and beige jacket, apparently making obscene signs with his hands in the direction of the camera.

Twitter user @JLQPR posted the clip on Twitter, writing: “Another video of the Leeds fans last night…. this one kept saying ‘smelly p***’ and ‘smelly n*****’ to my dad and another black supporter next to us.

“Still heard nothing from @QPR @LUFC Maybe@Amit_Bhatia99 can take a look….”

The video clearly shows the man looking towards the person filming and making “smelly” gestures, though it isn’t possible to make out exactly what he says.

His comment references “fans”, though only one can be seen clearly gesticulating in the clip.

Racism will absolutely not be tolerated by Leeds United and anyone found to be racially abusive will be banned from attending all games indefinitely

Fans reacted with outrage towards the alleged racism, that apparently took place place after QPR beat Leeds United 1-0 on Tuesday at QPR’s home stadium at Loftus Road.

WeAllLoveLeeds wrote: “Horrendous racism there from our fans- should have been ejected there and then by the police/stewards.

“There really is some scumbags in our support. Hope they get banned. Tarnishes the vast majority of our decent supporters.”


While Jordy P added: “Disgusting behaviour, sadly our fan base along with many others are still stuck in the stone age (tbh that might even be an insult to that period of human history). “Sorry you were subjected to that, the majority of us aren’t like that. Hopefully a ban is on the horizon!”

Leeds United have responded to the video, saying: “The club are aware of a video circulating on social media from our Sky Bet Championship fixture against QPR on Tuesday evening.

“Racism will absolutely not be tolerated by Leeds United and anyone found to be racially abusive will be banned from attending all games indefinitely.”
