Fans had mixed reactions after hearing Khabib Nurmagomedov’s confusion towards gender-neutral bathrooms.
Nurmagomedov was born and raised in the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic. As a result, the MMA legend sometimes questions Western culture, which can be considered controversial. A video of ‘The Eagle’ telling a story about gender-neutral bathrooms during a sitdown interview recently went viral. He had this to say:
“First time in my life, couple weeks ago, and I was in California. I was like in a coffee shop. I really want to go to the bathroom. It’s like can I go to the bathroom? They told me code, and I’m coming to two bathrooms, all gender, all gender. What is this? Where I have to go? First time I see this. I stay like five seconds. Where is woman? Where is man? I look around, anybody inside? I don’t know.”
The comment section was filled with various reactions, including anger, humor, and understanding. The following fans made jokes by saying:
“And there was a man in bathroom he smashed him.”
“And then he Smesh [Smash] Everybody”
“He smeshed [smashed] the door.”
Meanwhile, other fans agreed with Nurmagomedov and believe Western culture can be confusing:
“They don’t have to deal with the bulls*it like us soft westerners.”
“America ☕️is a joke”
“He lives in a place with logic theres no people who mental illnesses making decisions in his country.”
