Last week Marko Ivkovic, a fan of the Serbian basketball team Red Star Belgrade, was killed during a fight between fans of Red Star and the Turkish club Galatasaray.
In honor of the victim, the Turkish Basketball Federation held a moment of silence before this weekend’s match between Galatasaray and Besitkas. Well, not only did some members of the crowd not respectfully stay silent, they began to boo and chant “Turkey, Turkey.”
You can watch the sickening behavior in the video above.
On Saturday, over 1,000 people including the President of the Red Star team, gathered in front of the Turkish embassy in Belgrade on Saturday to protest the killing. No violent incidents occurred at the protest.
