Awwwww Zabby (Zabivaka)….. U r so cute. That’s the wolf representing the 2018 FIFA World Cup which will be held in Russia. So adorable right? We love him. But there is this one big problem.
The announcement of that Zabivaka is the official mascot of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia gave rise to pictures that equals to Zabivaka pornography, where he is depicted in the nude, showing his penis being in an erection, or him ejaculating while masturbating his soccer ball.
This is totally unacceptable and insane because this behaviour is highly degratory towards the creator of Zabivaka, the FIFA World Cup, Russia and the mascot culture. In response, the Russian Embassy from the United Kingdom tweeted about it and begged to stop the spreading of these shameful pics.
“Please stop making porn of Zabivaka the Wolf. Russia is begging you.”

We at HRSMA shall not condone such activities as this is a direct challenge to all of our beliefs, especially the reputation of the host nation Russia. In agreement with the Chairperson, we’ve decided to start a campaign on the social networks with the hashtag #StopZabivakaPorn in order to increase the awareness of this ugly event.
Mascots bring fun and joy to the people and makes us more open to the world. Not for pornography.
Let’s stop this once and for all. Spread the message.
