Days after Placebo bassist Stefan Olsdal and singer Brian Malko locked lips for gay rights in Vilnius, Lithuania, authorities are investigating a website and a pamphlet calling for queer killings. The have opened two separate investigations into are investigating two separate websites calling for queer killings. Vilnius Prosecutor spokesperson Aurelija Juodyte confirms:

Two separate investigations were started. One is related to a website directed against homosexual people, another to leaflets distributed in Vilnius, which call for action against the homosexual community.

Among the comments on the website, entitled ‘Let’s stop the rainbow colors’, were calls to beat and kill homosexual people… The leaflets warned homosexual people not to out (declare they were gay) in public.

Guess Olsdal and Malko didn’t get the message.
