The past 10 years wouldn’t have been possible without you. Thank you!
Apple gets sued for several reasons but this is the first time the Cupertino giant is being sued for manipulating the sexual orientation of an individual. Indeed, a Russian man has filed a lawsuit against Apple for turning him gay.
According to the lawsuit, the man claims that an iPhone cryptocurrency payments app notified that he received “69 GayCoins” with a note saying “Don’t judge until you try”. Upon reading this, it appears like he got intrigued and decided to try out same-sex relationships.
I thought, in truth, how can I judge something without trying? I decided to try same-sex relationships. Now I have a boyfriend and I do not know how to explain this to my parents… my life
has been changed for the worse and will never become normal again.
In the lawsuit filed at a Moscow court, he is demanding RUB 1 million which roughly translates to around USD $1 500. His lawyer says that the case is quite serious and her client is scared. The lawyer went on to say emphasize that Apple “has a responsibility for their programmes” even though all these happened in a third-party app. The suit got filed on September 20 and it will be up for hearing on October 17.
