Against the backdrop of public outcry, in February-March 2017, four more episodes of the “Let them talk” show were dedicated to Shurygin, which touched on the topic of the informational hype that began after the first issue of the show around Diana and her family. According to the host of the TV program Andrei Malakhov, the girl was not ready for the wave of hatred that spilled over her on the network, and social networks "raped her almost the second time." After publicity why? Diana and her family members began to receive threats on the network. According to the Shurygin, her mother was attacked on the street, and her father's car was punctured by tires.

In a number of Russian media, the phrase “Diana Shurygina’s syndrome ” - the concept is used to describe cases when publicly accusing sexual harassment is a way to gain fame, fame, and material wealth.

A number of media outlets supported Russian law enforcement agencies and linked the public outcry around Diana Shurygina with the ideology of blaming the victim in the form of blaming the rape victim for her “wrong, provocative” behavior. In particular, Shurygina violated several “rules of the ideal victim”: she went to a party, drank and met a rapist. As a result, people who observe history began to distance themselves in every way and taunt the victim, discussing her behavior and appearance, while justifying and idealizing the rapist.

On August 31 and September 4, 2017, on the “First Channel” there were two issues of the TV show “Actually” with the participation of Diana Shurygina: according to experts of the program, the polygraph confirmed Diana’s confidence that she was raped by Sergei Semenov. On January 21 and 22, 2019, 2 episodes of the “Actually” program were released with the participation of Diana Shurygina and Sergey Semenov: once again the fact of rape was confirmed, and Sergey admitted that Diana repelled him and said “no” during intercourse. According to some observers, interest in the scandal around Shuryginoy is artificially fueled by producers of television channels, since TV shows with the participation of those involved in this scandal consistently demonstrate a rather high rating.
