And finally… apple of his eye

A man who says he was encouraged to try homosexuality by an iPhone app has launched a lawsuit against Apple for “moral suffering” because he ended up with a boyfriend.

The plaintiff said he received an anonymous payment of 69 “GayCoins” on a cryptocurrency payment app, accompanied with a message along the lines of “don’t judge without trying”.

In the complaint, filed with a district court in Moscow, plaintiff D. Razumilov wrote: “I thought, indeed, how can I judge something without trying it? And decided to try same-sex relationships.

“I can say after the passage of two months that I’m mired in intimacy with a member of my own sex and can’t get out. I have a steady boyfriend and I don’t know how to explain it to my parents.”

He is seeking one million rubles (around £12,455) from Apple for “manipulatively pushing me towards homosexuality”, causing him “moral suffering and harm to mental health”, The Moscow Times reports.
