Nine Russian activists are suing for millions. They were offended by her support of homosexual rights during a concert in Petersburg. A February Petersburg law makes it illegal “to promote homosexuality to minors” and reportedly there were children as young as nine at the Madonna concert. They are demanding $10.5 million in damages.
Madonna is not the only one. Three residents of Novosibirsk are suing the jailed Pussy Riot Punk Rock girls for 30,000 rubles (about a thousand dollars) for hurt feelings caused by the punk rockers behavior in a Moscow cathedral.
U. S. lawyers: get on a plane to Russia. Maybe you can learn how to sue for hurt feelings in the United States where big bucks are at stake.
