Lady Gaga comes in support of the LGBT community in Russia
The 27-year-old took to Twitter to share her views on Russia's stance towards the LGBT community.
Los Angeles: Pop star Lady Gaga has extended her support to the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) community of Russia.
The 27-year-old took to Twitter to share her views on the country's stance towards the LGBT community, reports eonline.com.
"Sending bravery to LGBTs in Russia. The rise in government abuse is archaic. Hosing teenagers with pepper spray? Beatings? Mother Russia?" read her tweet.
"The Russian government is criminal. Oppression will be met with revolution. Russian LGBTs you are not alone. We will fight for your freedom ... Why didn't you arrest me when you had the chance, Russia? Because you didn't want answer to the world?" she added.
It is reported that the 'Poker face' singer reacted to a Russian official statement saying that the singer could face prosecution for not obtaining appropriate visas to enter and perform in the country when she was on her Monster Ball World Tour last year. As a result, prosecutors are looking into possibly asking Russia's foreign ministry or federal migration service to press charges.
The investigation came after Vitaly Milonov, the Russian politician, who authored St. Petersburg's law banning gay 'propaganda', brought the visa issue to the attention of authorities.
