Skater is Tatiana Navka. I am unfamiliar with her. She is though connected to Putin’s regime, her husband is Putin’s spokesperson. Russian tv is state controlled.
This is so very, very awful. As one comment put it will we see Scott Baio on Dancing With The Stars doing a slavery tribute in blackface and confederate flag.
Tatiana did say people should see Life Is Beautiful. Which is good. Yet it seems tone deaf and making light of the Holocaust. Maybe she did have good intentions but this is not something to be used for a competition.
