Hasbulla Won't Take Photos With Female Fans During Australian Tour Due To 'Cultural Beliefs'
| Last updated
Hasbulla is set for a trip Down Under later this year and while many fans will be excited to take pictures with the internet icon, he won’t be taking any snaps with female fans.
The 19-year-old will be visiting Australia in late August and early September as part of a meet and greet tour hosted by management company, The One Hour.
However, all those ladies who want to be able to show off to their friends that they met the internet legend will have to do it via word of mouth.
The One Hour's event’s page for Hasbulla's meet and greet states: “The Hour Group confirms that due to Hasbulla’s personal and cultural beliefs, he regrettably cannot take photos with female guests.
“To our female guests if you would like to attend the meet and greet with Hasbulla, you are welcome to do so, but please acknowledge the limitations of photography.”
They added: “We understand the disappointment this creates; however, we respectfully acknowledge the cultural and personal beliefs of Hasbulla and have to accommodate his requests accordingly.”
The teen online sensation is very excited about his trip Down Under and has already created a bucket list for things he'd like to do and see.
Speaking to the Sydney Morning Herald, Hasbulla said: “I come from a tiny town in Russia, so I am looking forward to experiencing a different culture.
“I also know there are kangaroos, and when I come to Australia, I would like to meet them and also visit iconic places like Bondi Beach.”
We would love to see that episode of Bondi Rescue.
CEO of The Hour Group Chris Tamplin told the Sydney Morning Herald that although they’ve flown out mega stars previously, the response to Hasbulla’s event has been overwhelming.
“We’ve brought the likes of Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal out here, and yet we’ve never had a response like this,” he said.
Tamplin added: “Hasbulla is quite unique, his personality is so infectious, and when he laughs, you can’t help but laugh along.”
The Hour Group CEO also teased that while the 19-year-old doesn’t speak English, he will have a translator accompanying him while he takes photos with fans.
Hasbulla will be in Sydney on August 29 and 30, before flying to Melbourne for August 31 and September 1.
