Defiance, pride and and mistaken identity.
Interfax News Agency reports that the fight broke out at a mall in Irkutsk [Siberia] on Sunday evening, after members of Easy School held a St Patrick’s day-themed flash mob.
A police spokesperson said: “Some youths came up to them and expressed displeasure at the proceedings. A conflict took place that grew into a fight on the square outside the mall.
“The Easy School members were wearing historic costumes, particularly kilts and their opponents mistook them for representatives of non-traditional sexual orientation.”
