White Russian fans beware, your favorite drink may be “infused with hate.” At least according to LGBT activists worldwide demanding a boycott of Russian vodka in response to new anti-gay laws.
From New York to London activists have staged “Vodka Dumps” and the streets run clear with Stoli. Of course in the US since patriots dumped tea into Boston Harbor there has been a strong consumer boycott tradition.
Worldwide the trend is similar. From high cheese prices to revolution-inspiring ads in recent years protesters have demanded boycotts for just about everything.
