“Why are people ignoring it?” asks the camera guy.
“Well, it’s now starting to get some attention, thanks to some of our government officials – even Nikki Haley, thank you! – and Joe Biden. Everyone is really starting to pay attention to it. It needs to stop. It’s crazy what people will do to people.”
He was asked if he has a message for the gay men in Chechnya who are dealing with this right now.
“Well, I don’t think they’re watching this,” he said, “They’re scared for their lives. But if I could send a message I would say ‘Stay strong, we love you, this world loves you, and things will change'”
