“Who is this Stephen Fry?” Milonov told the station. “I know because he is sick person because he tried to commit suicide as far as I remember.”
Milanov, who is one of the men behind Russia’s new anti-gay laws, was speaking in response to Fry’s open letter to the IOC and British Prime Minister David Cameron.
Milonov continued, stating that “[Homosexuality] is a shame and it is a sin but it is a personal choice. It is not normal but a person cannot be punished in Russia for being homosexual, or to live with a dog, with a horse, with a sheep, whatever.”
Fry recently admitted publicly that he is bipolar which almost drove him to taking his own life.
