The owner of fashion barbershop appealed to the charity organization with a proposal to cut their wards. After learning that the children with disabilities, the man canceled the event an hour before the start.
The owner of Krasnodar’s barbershop (Barber shop) Boss Vardan Poghosyan in early February appealed to the charity organization “Blue bird” with the offer to trim her team of boys. The head of the organization Lina Skvortsova agreed with pleasure: according to her, most of the children who are supported by a “Bird” are brought up without fathers, so any event involving men is very important for them.
However, on the appointed day, one hour before the first haircut, Poghosyan again contacted the organization and canceled. According to Skvortsova, the decision of the businessman explained that he wanted to help orphan children, not boys with disabilities. Some of them together with their mothers at this point were already on the way to the barbershop. Indignant, the woman told about the incident on his page on Facebook.
“WE have an EXPENSIVE INTERIOR, EXPENSIVE EQUIPMENT, EXPENSIVE RENT, the MASTER, RECEIVED an EXPENSIVE EDUCATION AND THEREFORE LOOK for SOMETHING ELSE TO YOUR beneficiaries,” wrote Lina (spelling and writing style more).
“believe me, a witness to this conversation were two other employees in my organization and this text – the most decent that I can quote, so as not to offend people whose families have a disabled,” she added.
Urban public was outraged, the story interested the local and national media, and then to the organization, according to Skvortsova, began to receive threats from Pogosyan. The parties agreed to meet in front of the press and lawyers. Talking to journalists, the owner of barbershop outlined the history somewhat differently.
“Answer me: excuse me, Vartan, orphans can’t come. But not explain why. We were waiting for them. After that, the woman offers me to cut the children with disabilities. I said I was not ready. This is a very delicate moment. And just so I won’t be able to take these guys and cut. I have not designed for this kind of handsome,” said the man NTV.
Meeting Skvortsova and Pogosyan face-to-face, according to her, nor to no avail: both sides remained unconvinced. To help Fund other Barber hastened to the city confirming that are happy to cut children, “Blue bird”.
