West Ham have banned a group of fans involved in a viral video appearing to be sniffing suspicious-looking white powder at the London Stadium.
The footage, uploaded to social media this week, shows one supporter smearing the powder on a bald man’s head and another appearing to sniff the contents in front of a group of highly entertained fans.
West Ham have since condemned their behavior and banned them from the London Stadium.
“The club is disgusted by the content of the video and has acted quickly to identify the perpetrators,” said a club spokesman.
“In line with our zero tolerance approach, the details of the offenders were immediately passed on to the police and all individuals have had their season tickets suspended and are therefore unable to enter the London Stadium and travel with the club for away games.

Pending our own club investigation, this could result in the offenders being suspended indefinitely.
“There is no place for this kind of behavior.”
Sports mail has also approached the Met Police for comment.
At the beginning of the shocking music video, fans burst into laughter as a supporter yells, “Come on, video that… Come on, get in.”
Another man starts screaming, ‘Let’s f***ing have it! Irons, irons.’
