Suck it Putin… I’m Drinking Whisky Tonight!

…a ban of Russian vodka in an attempt to send a message to Russia, “DON’T FUCK WITH THE GAYS! (Or we’ll stop getting loaded on your booze)”. The gay community followed suit.

stoli-gay-adLet’s take a minute to talk about the influence groups have on buying behaviour. In 2013, Russia got their hate-on for the LGBT community. Images made headlines of bleeding young people trying to speak out against Russia’s new bullshit laws against “homosexual propaganda”. Seattle columnist, gay-activist and general loud-mouth, Dan Savage, called for a ban of Russian vodka in an attempt to send a message to Russia, “DON’T FUCK WITH THE GAYS! (Or we’ll stop getting loaded on your booze)”. The gay community followed suit. All of a sudden brands like Stolichnaya and Russian Standard took the hit. Of course, they had nothing (nor could do nothing) about Putin’s shirt-less, horse-riding smack-down of sodomites… except readjusting their positioning… which they did. It seemed to do the trick and bleach blond twinks sporting American Appeal tank tops were back to drinking vodka-sodas the following weekend.
