He said: “You were the first premiership footballer to do shoots with gay magazines like Attitude, to speak openly about your gay fans, and you married a Spice Girl - which is the gayest thing a human being can do.
“But now it’s 2022 and you’ve signed a reported £10 million deal with Qatar, to be their ambassador during the FIFA World Cup. Qatar was voted as the one of the worst places in the world to be gay - homosexuality is illegal, punishable by imprisonment, and if you’re Muslim, possibly even death.
“You have always talked about the power of football as a force for good - which suggests to me you have never seen West Brom - but generally, I agree. So with that in mind, I’m giving you a choice.”
Lycett then went on to show a bundle of £10,000 in cash - representing a grand for every million Beckham is reportedly receiving from Qatar - saying that he will donate ten grand of his own money to queer football charities.
“However, if you do not, at midday next Sunday, I will throw this money into a shredder, just before the opening ceremony of the World Cup,” he said.
And that’s not all. He continued to say the destruction would be streamed live on a website called ‘B***ers Like Beckham’, and that his “status as a gay icon” would also be shredded.
“You'll be forcing me to commit what might be a crime. Although even then, I reckon I'll get off more lightly than I would if I got caught whacking off a lad in Doha.
“The choice is yours. I look forward to hearing from you,” he concluded.
