Russian man sues Apple after cryptocurrency “turned him gay”
A Russian man has filed a lawsuit against Apple alleging that a cryptocurrency app caused him to turn gay, according to a copy of the complaint seen by news agency AFP and reproduced in the Telegraph.
The man tried to buy some Bitcoin, but he received some “GayCoin” instead. In the case filed September 20, the complainant claimed that Apple encouraged him "towards homosexuality through manipulation" by allowing him to receive GayCoin. He is asking for one million rubles ($15,000) for his complaint, which he believed caused him “moral and mental harm," arguing that he “will never become normal again.” The complainant’s lawyer, Sapizhat Gusnieva, told AFP that Apple "has a responsibility for their programmes.”
