Erica Kutalia with boyfriend Moses
Last weekend, protesters in the United States joined the 19-year-old daughter of Ivan Urgant and Natalya Kiknadze Erica (her father is Vakhtang Kutalia, Natalya’s ex-husband) and her boyfriend Moses, who are taken to the streets of New York to speak out against racism and brutal acts. the police. However, this fact did not arouse public interest as much as a poster, which was held in the hands of the beloved daughter of the Russian showman.
The system makes us tougher than you girls,
– was written on his poster.
After that, Moses was criticized by Russian netizens, who described these words as offensive not only for Erica, but also for her whole family. As a result, after a lot of hateful comments, the young man publicly apologized.
I have never been disrespectful to Erica or her relatives. I love her and her family. My poster and my message about what we are fighting for have been misinterpreted and explained as a lack of respect for his family. My message was completely ignored and made me an enemy again. I can’t count how many times in my life my skin color has been “sexualized” and they have told me that I am only good for sex. I’m just one person, but most people don’t see that. My poster was not related to Erica and her family, it was intended for those who believe that me and the other blacks are only adapted to the sex,
Erica herself commented on the scandalous situation. She noted that she did not take into account that this entry could be read differently for different people.
I am saddened that, despite all the information about the Black Lives Matters movement, despite the fact that I try to talk about racism for my Russian subscribers, despite the fact that I try to make a difference by supporting those who need it , you still decided to see what is not. You are more interested in seeing an outrageous headline made up of information that has nothing to do with you, besides being fake. I would never choose to be with those who don’t respect me or my family. The words on the poster were not for me or my father. Black men are over-sexed and exploited very often to the point that they cannot meet standards. Think for yourself of the number of stereotypes that exist on this subject … As for the word “girls”, he wrote it because earlier the parents of some of his friends did not want their daughters / sons to communicate with him, because he’s not white. Seeing the dirt, the hidden meaning when it’s not there, is always a choice. So let’s choose to support and love each other,
She defended her boyfriend.
The romance of Erica and Moses became known last year. The couple had to face bullying on the net more than once because of the color of Moses’ skin. Erica not only does not close her Instagram to strangers, but also continues to post photos with her lover.
Erica has lived in the United States for several years, where she studies at Parsons School in New York and studies contemporary art and photography there.
