Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Controversial anti-gay Russian MP Milonov blocked from TikTok, blames ban on ‘foreign sodomites’ abusing his freedom of speech”. Below is an excerpt from the article.
Speaking to RIA Novosti on Monday, Milonov said that his team has already sent complaints and appeals to the tech giant, but is yet to receive any response.
“Some foreign sodomites want to once again abuse freedom of speech and my account,” he told the news agency.
It is still possible to view Milonov’s TikTok videos, but the State Duma parliamentarian is not able to post any new material.
Milonov’s TikTok account was created last April, when he posted a video of himself smelling a plant and dancing around a monument of Saint Nicholas the Wonderworker, all to the sound of Jay Sean’s 2008 hit ‘Ride It.’
Speaking to Russian gossip site Life.ru, the politician said that the move to ban him from TikTok is a sign that Russians should create their own TikTok analogue, just as programmer Pavel Durov created VKontakte, a Facebook clone.
