Madonna v Russian Bigots
A group of Russian anti-gay activists sued American pop star Madonna for US$10 million (NZ$12.3 million) on Friday, saying she had insulted their feelings when she spoke out for gay rights at a concert in St Petersburg last week.
There are many grounds for suing Madonna but this one is pathetic.
“Maybe someone does not see the link but after Madonna’s concert maybe some boy becomes gay, some girl becomes lesbian, fewer children are born as a result and this big country cannot defend its borders – for me it causes moral suffering,” said Alexei Kolotkov, another of the activists who filed the suit.
Although if you can sue people for hurting feelings perhaps the GLBT community in New Zealand could get together and sue Colin Craig.
