From PokerTube:

The French in the tweet above - ‘On prend l’Europe, on l’encule à deux’ – translates as ‘We take Europe, we fuck two’, referencing lyrics from rap group PNL.

Apart from being generally offensive, the French verb ‘encule’ is taken to mean ‘fuck in the ass’, hence the homophobia claims that followed the tweet.

The tweet was designed to celebrate both Paris Saint German and Olympique Lyonnais reaching the Champions League semi-finals, PSG later making it to the final.

The offensive tweet image appears below.

La République En Marche (LREM) deputy Olga Givernet, responded:

‘In France, gambling is prohibited, except by dispensation. Faced with the lack of ethics of @WinamaxSport, @gouvernementFR and @ ANJ_FR must suspend the authorization given to Winamax to offer sports betting.’

Winamax also owns France's largest online poker site.
