Let me remind this is happening now, 2017!
Andy Cohen called out Chechnya’s leader Ramzan Kadyrov over social media Wednesday night amid allegations that gay men are being rounded up, imprisoned and tortured in the southern Russian republic, holding the Chechen leader responsible for these “crimes.”
“Imprisoning people for who they love is inhuman,” Cohen told his followers and Kadyrov. “You have to stop it. Free the gays.”
In the post, Cohen tagged @kadyrov_95eng, Kadyrov’s official Instagram page as the Head of the Chechen Republic. Cohen urged his followers to speak out as well, calling for protests until the men are released. He also asked his followers to sign a petition making the rounds on social media.
