Homophobic ’Ehh Puto’ Chant Breaks Out in Mexico’s House of Representatives

Deputies in San Lázaro screaming the nefarious "Ehhhh Puto" (ElValleMexico)

‘Ehh puto,’ or ‘hey f*ggot,’ in English, was chanted on Friday in Mexico’s House of Representatives. The homophobic chant is popular among Mexico’s soccer fans.

The chant broke out during the intervention of Ariel Juárez, deputy of Morena, who is accused of corruption. During the session, Juárez mentioned that César Camacho, the coordinator of Mexico’s Tricolor Party, said there are ‘10 million non-existent fund weights to “buy conscience” in the electoral processes that are approaching.’

It was at this point that chants of ‘hey puto’ came from legislators as they rose from their seats.

This chant, popular among Mexico’s soccer fans, has gotten Team Mexico in trouble before due to its homophobic nature.

After the chant was over, Board of Directors of the Chamber of Deputies, Jorge Carlos Ramírez Marín, requested that Article 10 of the Rules of Procedure of the Lower House be read.

‘Article 10. Act with order and decorum in all their actions, using a language consistent with parliamentary dignity, eliminating the use of vulgar, derogatory, degrading or vulgar expressions, and seeking at all times that dealing with all people is kind and respectful, regardless of his condition,’ read deputy and secretary of the Bureau, Ana Guadalupe Perea.
