Lady Gaga threatened with arrest and $50k fine for supporting gays in anti-gay Russia…
Vitaly Milonov, a conservative MP who authored a controversial law banning “homosexual propaganda” in Russia’s cultural capital, said he would ask prosecutors to investigate Lady Gaga for breaking the law.
“We will contact prosecutors and the law enforcement agencies to carry out a thorough investigation of the situation,” Milonov told Life News, a Kremlin-friendly tabloid.
“When people tell kids ‘you must support sexual minorities’, that can create a false equivalence for them between traditional and non-traditional relationships.”
Lady Gaga says her manager received a call saying she would face a $50,000 fine or be arrested if she spoke about the LGBT community while performing in St. Petersburg.
