Grozny: film theater stops selling tickets to movie about “seven Korean homos”
Threats to film distributors appeared in the Chechen group Karfagen, known for harassing women of inappropriate, as users say, behavior.
The Kinostar film theater in the capital of Chechnya has been forced to suspend the sale of tickets for the movie Love Yourself about the Korean pop group BTS. This happened after the appearance of threats from the local people in social networks.
The information that the ticket sales were temporarily stopped appeared in the cinema’s account on Instagram. No reasons are reported, however, according to Kavkazsky Uzel, this is due to the fact that residents of Chechnya opposed the movie in social networks. In particular, threats to film distributors appeared in the Chechen group Karfagen, known for harassing women of inappropriate, as users say, behavior. According to them, the Korean movie is an attempt to “insult the Chechen people.”
The screening of the movie Love Yourself has been already canceled in Makhachkala due to the fact that the locals thought the main characters in the movie were “not manly enough.” According to them, the screening of “movie about seven Korean homos” in Dagestan is unacceptable. As reported by Kommersant, earlier, users of the same social network groups called for the disruption of Egor Kreed’s show. As a result, the singer’s gigs were cancelled.
