Imagine Dragons scandal in Georgia: a fan was not allowed to unfurl the Ukrainian flag and the musicians did not react
An unpleasant incident occurred at a concert of the famous band Imagine Dragons in Georgia. A spectator who brought the flag of Ukraine with her was forbidden to unfurl it.
In addition, a similar ban concerned the flag of Georgia. Khrystyna spoke about the scandal with the guards in the news broadcast (to see photos and video, scroll to the end of the page).
According to the viewer, more than one security guard approached her to prevent her from displaying the flag.
"A guard came up and told me to remove the flag, I replied that I was not breaking the law. Then a second, third, fourth and fifth guard approached me, I don't know how many people came. One man took the flag away from me altogether. He said that you can't unfurl flags not only of Ukraine but also of Georgia. It was a shame," she said.
Interestingly, the band did not react to the loud scandal in any way, which has been discussed in the media for a day now. The artists, who have been supporting Ukraine and spreading the truth about Russian terrorism for more than a year, did not explain why the flags of the two countries could not be unfurled at their performance.
We would like to add that the frontman of the American band Dan Reynolds pays special attention to Ukraine and the war theme at almost every concert. He not only unfurls the flag but also dedicates songs to Ukrainians. For example, the musician performs the iconic song Forever Young in memory of the children killed as a result of Russian aggression.
Imagine Dragons are also ambassadors of UNITED24. They recently performed in Poland, unfurling a flag with the platform's logo. 14-year-old Sasha from Mykolaiv region, whose house was destroyed by the occupants, helped them. The boy became the protagonist of the band's music video for their new hit Crushed.
Earlier OBOZREVATEL wrote that the band initiated a drawing of a guitar with autographs of all musicians for a donation to help Ukraine. Any of the fans who will take part can get a valuable prize.
