The Gay Party spokesman Fabrizio Marrazzo accused Milan forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic of homophobia and discrimination after a joke at Sanremo.
The Swede is currently presenting at the 71st edition of the annual music festival in Liguria, where host Amadeus asked the 39-year-old to imagine to broadcast the show from his home.
“Singers in the living room, girls with Zlatan,” he answered. “You in the kitchen making me coffee."
Amadeus then asked what singer Achille Lauro would do.
“We’ll put him in the garage to look after the cars, the thieves won’t enter and they won’t steal anything because they are afraid of him.”
Achille Lauro is an Italian singer and performance artist, compared by some to a gender-fluid Lady Gaga.
The spokesperson for the Gay Party explained to La Repubblica that it was a ‘derogatory and macho tone’.
He then recalled: “Ibrahimovic, already in Spain, in 2010, made a homophobic joke when a journalist asked him if he was gay and he replied, ‘bring me your sister’.”
Marrazzo also pointed at the recent ‘racist offenses towards Inter forward Romelu Lukaku’s mother’.
