Famous singer Cher flatly refused to open the Olympic Games in Sochi in 2014, of which a Russian oligarch has been asking her for quite a long time.
She said: "I can't name names but my friend called who is a big oligarch over there and asked me if I'd like to be an ambassador for the Olympics and open the show. I immediately said no. I want to know why all of this gay hate just exploded over there. He said the Russian people don't feel the way their government does."
Whoever said that, said that wrong. Most Russians support the law, which does not target homosexual individuals directly, but bans the propaganda of homosexual lifestyle among minors.
