Instagram users would not condemn shooting in KBR because of film about prostitution

The decision to make a film about prostitution in the Kabardino-Balkarian Republic (KBR) was criticized by Instagram users. Many of them expressed support for the man who opened fire on the film crew in the dwelling settlement of Prokhladny, and suggested that in other republics of Northern Caucasus the reaction could be still harsher.

On September 4, in Prokhladny, during filming of the serial, a man opened fire on the cars of the film crew. No one was hurt, but one of the actresses was hospitalized due to stress. According to preliminary data, the shooter was drunk and began shooting in protest against the film about prostitutes.

The serial "Chiki" tells "about the return of a Moscow prostitute home to KBR, about her attempts to get her family out of distress, and her hard fate in her small homeland."

The news about the incident has triggered stormy debates among social network users. On the Instagram, many commentators opposed the film on prostitution in the KBR and expressed their support for the shooter.

Others were still outraged by the man, who opened fire.

In 2017, the TNT TV channel, in the Comedy Woman humour show, presented a sketch, in which a Jewish girl from an escort agency cursed in the Ingush language; and social network users decided that she was imaging a prostitute from Ingushetia. They threatened to "catch one by one" the offenders and force them to "beg forgiveness" on their knees. In December, TNT stars recorded a video clip, in which they apologized to residents of Ingushetia for the sketch.
