Blogger Alexander Smirnov, known as Sasha Tilex, and his friend recorded a video message apologizing to Ramzan Kadyrov. Video of repentance placed on the channel pro_chechnya in Instagram.
Artists apologize for writing parody, which depicts the head of Chechnya rapper Timati. In the parody, the rapper asked the head of Chechnya to help him, so that the artists collaborated with the label Black Star. After that they together with people in camouflage intimidate artists, and they sign contracts with the label. Now this video is already deleted from the channel Sasha Tilex.
“I want to apologize to the head of the Chechen Republic and Hero of Russia Ramzan Kadyrov and the Chechen people all over the parody video we made. We honor and respect the traditions of the Chechen people and in any case didn’t want our video hurt somebody’s feelings,” — said Smirnov.
The blogger said that the decision to apologize he took after he called the Director of a broadcasting company “Grozny” Ahmed Dudaev. “Unfortunately, before shooting this work, we did not ask permission and was not convinced that this movie offends no-one”, — he explained.
The comments in the account pro_chechnya some users have suggested to rename it into “excuse me”. “When something is off about Ramzan, it is better to take the apology videos. In any need,” wrote one commentator.
