Bars dump vodka over anti-gay laws

Some people want to "dump Stoli" to protest Russia's anti-gay legislation.

But the protest may not have the kind of impact they're hoping for.

Erin Burnett explains in the OutFront OutTake.

    I don't agree with the Stoli boycott, but this is one of the first stories I've seen about the anti gay laws in Russia. And it was a story about Stoli more so than about the anti LGBT issues in Russia. But I doubt that we would be hearing anything about it on the news if it were not for this boycott...at least until we got closer to the start of next year's Olympics if even then.
