Russia Has Banned Selena Gomez Because The Country Fears She’s Too Gay-Friendly

Russia Has Banned Selena Gomez Because The Country Fears She’s Too Gay-Friendly
Politics

Russia has not exactly been the most friendly to gay people. Well, that might be a vast understatement, as Russia has voiced its desire to arrest gay tourists, as well as making it illegal to inform children that gay people exist.

Now, the country is refusing to let pop singer Selena Gomez into the country, as Russia is afraid she’s too friendly to gays.

“U.S. pop star Selena Gomez has been forced to cancel two concerts in Russia after indirectly falling victim to Russia’s anti-gay law,” reports The Moscow Times. 

There’s no indication whether Gomez planned on expressing her political views while performing in the country, but Russia didn’t even want to take the risk of a pop culture influence in the country.

Naturally, the Internet has run amuck with jokes about this being a direct response to Gomez’s relationship history with Justin Bieber.

“Also she dated noted lesbian Justin Bieber,” wrote nemomen in response to The Atlantic Wire’s article on the matter.

Nemomen may be on to something, as there is a Tumblr page dedicated solely to lesbians who look like Justin Bieber. There’s no word as to whether or not Russia has Bieber Fever or if Bieberi s allowed in the country.
