A Russian man has opened a lawsuit against Apple, claiming an iPhone app turned him gay. He says it happened after using GayCoin crypto-currency.
The man says that he suffered moral harm and is asking for one million rubles ($14,700), according to the complaint. In a suit filed in September, the man claims that a crypto-currency called “GayCoin” was delivered via a smartphone app, rather than the Bitcoin he had ordered. The GayCoin crypto-currency allegedly arrived with a note saying, “Don’t judge until you try”.
“I thought, in truth, how can I judge something without trying? I decided to try same-sex relationships,” the complainant wrote.
“Now I have a boyfriend and I do not know how to explain this to my parents.” Apple “pushed” him “towards homosexuality through manipulation”, he claims. The court will hear the complaint on October 17. Apple has not yet responded to request for comment.
