As if we needed further reason not to tar a group with the same brush for the actions of a minority, a story has emerged from Bosnia & Herzegovina today that suggests the complete fecking eejit who had a few pints and thought he was a legend by interrupting the moment of silence for Paris on Monday was involved in an altercation with some of his fellow Bosnia supporters.
We've all seen how the moment of silence didn't go as planned at the Aviva stadium, where you can clearly hear a drunk idiot blurting something out which led to many an Irish supporter thinking that the individual in question deserved a slap. We'll, he got that slap, and then some.
Speaking to Bosnian publication Source.ba, a Bosnian fan explained what happened later on that evening:
I don't know the guy, don't know his name. I know that he was drunk and that he was the only one who disrupted the moment of silence chanting "Palestine, Palestine". Some of our fans ran into him at the hotel after that game and asked him if he was the one who was shouting. He said he was, raising his voice. Then our fans hit him a couple of times.
They clearly weren't impressed with one drunk idiot embarrassing the lot of them, so they took action.
While the entire of point of that minute of silence was to stand up against violence, it seems like a counterproductive thing to then beat him up later on, but maybe he'll think twice before he acts like a complete twat the next time.
