  • IKEA has pulled a photo depicting four people dressed like Pussy Riot, sitting on their couches wearing brightly-colored face covering balaclava masks.  The image — which appears to be a reference to the three punk rockers who were jailed this summer for speaking out publicly against the government — was uploaded onto IKEA’s Russian website in a section that posts pics of customers posing with their furniture. The company said it did not want to become “propapanda” for Pussy Riot by keeping the image up, so it was removed.  [The Local SE]
