The North Londoners have allegedly banned the BBC from using Arsenal shirts and from mocking their fans in their police drama ‘By Any Means’, as the play portrays them as stupid people.
A BBC spokesperson told the Daily Mail, as per The Daily Cannon quotes: “Arsenal declined permission to use their branded shirts… so production decided, on advice to use shirts in a similar style instead.”
The story is about a stupid Arsenal fan that tricks the police and avoids bail after being charged for robbery. The police attract him with the prospect of a stadium tour and with a chance of meeting some Arsenal players.
The fan is arrested and the following words are said to him: “You are under arrest for being an Arsenal fan. Anything you do say will be ignored”\
The detective is then questioned about the scam he was involved in and if it was unethical, to which he replied, “It’s worse than that, they’re Gooners.”
This is indeed a very pathetic thing to do and attacking a club – even if it is unintentional – is not the right thing to do. They could have made up an imaginary club for the play’s sake.
