The Sochi Winter Olympics have been mired in controversy since it seems like forever! Mostly because of Russia's insane anti-LGBT laws!
Which is why the band Blondie gave the Olympic organizers a big N-O when they offered the iconic band a borsht load of money to play a concert one of the nights of the Olympics!
The band's front-lady Debbie Harry shared on Twitter a photo of the offer, and Blondie's response was amazing! On the offer's sheet - they wrote in black marker: "Pass. Human Rights".
Here's what Debbie said on Twitter, too:
We LOVE it when folks keep their principles intact for their embedded beliefs! It gives us so much hope!
We also hope all of this attention will shed some light on the plight of LGBT people in Russia who face all sorts of horrendous persecution on a daily basis. Maybe when this is all said and done - some much needed changes will be brought about.
Which is why we salute our proverbial hats to Blondie for standing up for human rights!!!
