Did Elton John Get Prank Called? Putin Denies Calling Singer To Discuss Gay Rights
Let's get the story straight...
Elton John claimed Monday that Putin called him to discuss Gay Rights, but the Kremlin is denying the convo ever took place.
In 2013, Russia passed a highly discriminatory law that forbids public discussion of gay rights and relationships anywhere children might hear it.
A report by Human Rights Watch said Russian authorities are failing to protect gay people from persecution and are not prosecuting the perpetrators of a growing number of homophobic attacks.
It looks like the alleged Vlad & Elton phone call may have been a hoax after all.
When asked by the BBC what he would say to Putin, Elton John replied, "Be accepting, and let's all pull together and try to solve the problems of the world. But don't isolate and be prejudiced against gay people."
"I'd love to meet him," the singer said. "I'd love to sit down with him and talk to him. It's probably pie in the sky -- but at least you try."
