Meanwhile, one of the most popular tech groups in VK, the biggest social network in Russia, mocks her for perceived hypocrisy. "Here's the girl who claimed she was robbed of her childhood". Underneath – the images of her with Arnold Schwarzenegger, Barack Obama, and someone else quite famous.
It smells of the same anti-intellectualism that's on the rise in the US, and slightly – of possible political meddling. (Whether there's any actual meddling happening is unclear, and I'm not aware of the state's influence on the social network. I do find it just a bit odd that there's this one post amindst dozens of actual tech ones.)
