Gaga promoter fined over gay propaganda

  • A Russian woman's 13-year-old daughter was reportedly exposed to advocacy of alcohol and also witnessed two women pretending to have sex. The mother filed a complaint and a court decided to fine those who organized the show. 

    Even though such behavior sounds typical of a Gaga concert, the organizers were fined for "propaganda of alcohol consumption and homosexuality."

    According to the judge, the promotor violated the clause in Russia meant for the protection of children. The company had to pay only $614 but the mother could sue the promoter for much more arguing her daughter was traumatized. 

    Madonna faced such a situation last year as well; these laws have resulted several performers to boycott the country.
