Elton John said that he was “deeply upset” by Russian President Vladimir Putin‘s comments in a recent interview with the Financial Times claiming that liberal values are becoming “obsolete.”
In a lengthy post on Instagram over the weekend, Elton said he strongly disagrees with Putin’s view that pursuing policies that embrace multicultural and sexual diversity are obsolete in the world’s societies.
“I find duplicity in your comment that you want LGBT people to ‘be happy’ and that ‘we have no problem in that.’ Yet Russian distributors chose to heavily censor my film ‘Rocketman‘ by removing all references to my finding true happiness through my 25 year relationship with David and the raising of my two beautiful sons. This feels like hypocrisy to me,” the legendary singer wrote.
Elton said he is “truly grateful” for the advancement in the British government’s policies that have allowed and legally supported his marriage to David Furnish.
