Blogger Kamikadze reports threats from Khabib Nurmagomedov's supporters

A call addressed to the fighter, Khabib Nurmagomedov, to stop attacks on theatre has caused a wave of threats, said the blogger Kamikaze. He refused to apologize to Nurmagomedov and criticized the "fighters for morality" in Dagestan for inattention to social problems of the region.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that the defenders of morality, including the MMA (mixed martial arts) fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov, criticized the play "Hunting for Men", staged in Makhachkala. Ivan Zhidkov, the producer of the play and an actor, has apologized to residents of the republic, noting that the theatrical company is receiving threats in social networks.

The blogger Kamikaze has recorded a video, in which he appears in a make-up imitating bloody bruises. While parodying apologies, he breathes heavily, sitting by a tree in the forest; they grab him by the hair and, shoving a paper in his face, force him the read it. However, instead of apologizing, Kamikaze is rushing with criticism on Khabib Nurmagomedov's supporters.

"The video clip is exclusively for those who want me to be found, beaten up and force to apologize to Khabib," the blogger says. He explains that "he told Khabib not to go in for the theatrical art," because he is not an expert therein, and to pay attention to other topics, such as the women's rightlessness in Dagestan.

After that, according to the blogger, he received many threats and death wishes.
