Interestingly, Pletneva also ridiculed the #MeToo movement previously
Pletneva's controversial statement put her at the receiving end of flak with radio journalist Tatyana Felgenhauer writing on Twitter, "I wonder what Pletneva will say when she's reminded of Say No to Racism".
Notably, Pletneva is not new to controversy. Earlier, she ridiculed the #MeToo campaign and had said, "We're not in America or Europe. Why should we copy everything?"
