Watch what Russian men are doing after an Austrian drag artist won the Eurovision song contest

    2014/05/13

NSFW    The winner of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest 25-year old Conchita Wurst, aka Austrian drag artist Thomas Neuwirth, romped home with her Shirley Bassey/James Bond-style performance of Rise like a Phoenix in a victory that had nothing whatsoever to do with protest votes from other nations after Russia called for a boycott of Eurovision.

As expected, homophobic Russians everywhere overreacted to her victory, with nationalist politician Vladimir Zhirinovsky calling her victory “The end of Europe,”
while some Russian men shaved off their beards in protest.

Even Vladimir Putin’s vice-premier Dmitry Rogozin tweeted that the result “showed supporters of European integration their European future — a bearded girl.”

Undeterred, Wurst dedicated the victory “to everyone who believes in a future of peace and freedom,” before arriving home to a heroine’s welcome.

“I have very thick skin,” Wurst told AFP.

To which we here at Tomonews say, “Good, you’ll need it.”
