Rappers Ivan Osobov and Slim (Vadim Motylev), after complaints from Orthodox activists removed the clip “s legkim parom” about a priest who spends time with prostitutes in the sauna and uses drugs. This Osobov said in a video message on YouTube.

“When we recorded this video, we did not pursue the goal to hurt anybody’s feelings or offend someone’s feelings, but, rather, wanted to draw attention to the problem, which is the place to be. But due to the fact that there are many askorbinata people from a number of Orthodox activists who want to initiate a criminal case against me under article 148 of “insulting the feelings of believers”, I decided to delete the video,” said Osobov.

Informed in group of public Association “the voice of the people” the social network “Vkontakte” appeared the announcement that the activists filed complaints to the Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation and “a number of other authorities” with the requirement to block the roller and bring the authors to justice. According to the applicants, the video insults the feelings of believers, “undermines the level of trust in the Church,” “corrupts society” and promotes the use drug and alcohol money.

“In the video, the priest is in the back seat of an expensive car, in a circle of two ladies of easy virtue, in the glove compartment of the car is a large sum of money for “the shadow scheme” and a gun. After they moved to bath, where he uses drugs”, – activists tell the story of the clip. At the time of publication of the video remains accessible in the community “New rap” the social network “Vkontakte”.

Earlier in the center of this scandal was the TV presenter Ivan Urgant: in the Christmas edition of the program “Evening Urgant” showman showed a collage with actor Nicolas cage in the image of baby Jesus surrounded by “wise men” – by Directors Nikita Mikhalkov, Steven Spielberg and Quentin Tarantino. This is due to the fact that the date of the Orthodox Christmas coincides with the birthday of Nicolas cage.

Later, listening to the arguments a guest on the show actor Gerard Depardieu about Russian cuisine and cooking a suckling pig, the presenter compared the gesticulating actor with the Virgin Mary, who cradles Jesus. “Yes, it is, it’s a sacrifice. The pig will end up on the cross, and in the dish, but it’s the same victim,” – said Depardieu.

after a week of “Orthodox” movement “forty times Forty”, has posted a petition demanding that the leadership of the First channel to apologize, “punish the guilty” and remove the “outrageous edition”. In the movement felt that Urgant and the First channel “deliberately allowed himself a conscious mockery of the Christian feast of the Nativity of Christ, and blasphemy for the purpose of insulting the feelings of believers”.

In the petition mentioned several times the presence of TV host of foreign nationality. Activists called for a ban in Russia DVOynoe citizenship and to deprive a people with a foreign citizenship Russian passports, and block all editions of the “Evening Urgant”, which contains a mockery of Christ, the saints and the Orthodox shrines, to apologize to the Russian Orthodox Church and all the Orthodox, to punish editors, and other responsible employees of the channel.

the Deputy of the state Duma Nikolay Zemtsov in turn at the request of “Soroka” asked the new Prosecutor General of Russia Igor Krasnov to make Urgant criminal case on insulting the feelings of believers (148 of the criminal code), to initiate proceedings under article 282 of the RF criminal code “inciting hatred or hostility, and humiliation of human dignity” and “the First channel” to issue a warning.

as a result Urgant apologized to believers, saying that the collage with the cage were not “planned action on the mockery of Christian values.” Subsequently, the release dated January 7, disappeared from the site of the First channel, and from the YouTube channel “Evening Urgant”.
