‘’Now I have a boyfriend and I do not know how to explain this to my parents’’- a complainant tells the court.
There are many spicy cases in the world of electronics but the one below has got the highest magnitude if we take a glance
A Russian man has filed a lawsuit against Apple, claiming an iPhone app turned him gay, it has been reported.
The claimant named only as D Razumilov has demanded one million rubles ($12600) in compensation for moral harm and says he was manipulated into getting a boyfriend- who he is still with. The line sounds weird but is witnessed by the court.
He says that he felt compelled to dabble with homosexuality after receiving an app payment in a cryptocurrency called Gaycoin. ‘’Don’t judge until you try,’’ a note that came with the money allegedly said.
‘’I thought in truth, how can I judge something without trying?’’ the complainant wrote in his court submission that the words persuaded him to give it a chance as making conclusions with preconceived notions is not always healthy.
‘’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’’- the man complained to the court emphasizing that all that happened was uncontrolled and he is innocent as he just rushed with the flow. He blamed the iPhone app for his deteriorating sentiments.
‘’Apple pushed me towards homosexuality through manipulation. The changes have caused me moral and mental harm’’
The suit was filed in Moscow on 20 September and the court will now hear on 17 October, the AFP news agency reported.
Asked if the case was genuine, lawyer Sapizhat Gusnieva insisted it was, saying her client was scared and had ‘’suffered’’.
She said ‘’the US technology giants have a responsibility for their clients and programmes, despite the alleged cryptocurrency exchange taking place on an unidentified third party app’’
Apple’s representative in Russia has not responded to request for comment.
Homophobia is widespread in the country where reports of rights violations and attack on LGBT people are common.
