A Russian Man has reportedly filed a lawsuit against Apple for suffering ‘moral harm’ as he claims an AppStore application ‘turned him gay’.
A man from Russia has filed a lawsuit against Apple in a Moscow court, claiming one million rubles (£12,400) for damage, according to the complaint reported in the Moscow Times.
According to the plaintiff, he was sent a cryptocurrency called ‘GayCoin’ via an AppStore application. He had ordered Bitcoin but received ‘GayCoin’.
Sapizhat Gusnieva, the plaintiff’s lawyer told AFP that the lawsuit was ‘serious’. He claimed that the man is ‘scared’ as he suffered a mental crisis.
According to the claim, the man received the GayCoin with a note cites: “Don’t judge until you try.”
Hence, the plaintiff decided to do exactly what he was suggested. Despite the fact that you can’t ‘turn’ someone gay, he says he is now in a relationship with a man.
The plaintiff Man claims – “Apple pushed me towards homosexuality through manipulation. The changes have caused me moral and mental harm.”
In spite of the fact that ‘GayCoin’ is exchanged through a third-party application, Gusnieva says Apple has a ‘responsibility for their programs’.
The suit was filed on 20 September. The Moscow court is set to hear the motion on 17 October.
