A New Year's Eve scandal broke out in Poland after the Black Eyed Peas, an American band, showed support for LGBT rights by wearing rainbow armbands during a performance.
This was reported by BBC.
Singer Will.i.am thanked the Poles for their “open hearts and minds”. for accepting Ukrainian women and children into their homes after Russia invaded Ukraine.
He then dedicated the band's song Where Is the Love? “to those who experience hatred during the year”, including members of the LGBT community.
Rainbow headbands caused a reaction in social networks.
“Shame! This is not a New Year's Eve of dreams, this is a New Year's Eve of degeneration,” Polish Deputy Justice Minister Marcin Warhol tweeted. =twsrc%5Etfw[/embed]
Poland's ruling coalition party Law and Justice distanced itself from criticism on this issue. Asked about the incident on Monday, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said he supports the “family” but is opposed to restricting “creative expression” groups.
