News “Tanuki” intends to recover losses from the “Male State” for harassment in social networks


The Tanuki restaurant chain intends to file a lawsuit against the Male State movement (an extremist organization whose activities are prohibited in Russia. – Approx. ed.). The founder of the company Alexander Orlov said this in an interview with Forbes. According to him, the network intends to recover the losses it incurred due to the group’s attack – the final amount of losses will be calculated after all channels of the “Male State” and its founder Vladislav Pozdnyakov stop working.

Recall that supporters of the group launched an online attack on the Tanuki network at the end of August, demanding that photos with African Americans and LGBT symbols be removed from Instagram. In response, the network said it was not going to pander to its interests. “Beautiful people will continue to appear on the photos in our social networks – representatives of different religions, nationalities, races and orientations,” the company said.

Earlier, the group targeted the Yobidoyobi sushi delivery network, as well as Dozhd employees, Pussy Riot members, LGBT activists and aquists, and many others.
