A Russian man is seeking more than $15,000 in damages from Apple after claiming that the U.S. tech giant drove him to homosexuality, the EXE News has reported.
The plaintiff, recognized as D. Razumilov, alleges that he became “mired in identical-sex relationships” this summer time after receiving 69 GayCoins on a cryptocurrency charge app he downloaded onto his iPhone in 2017. The unknown sender changed into said to have blanketed an English-language message that Razumilov interpreted as “don’t judge with out attempting.”
“I thought, indeed, how can I judge something without trying it? And decided to try same-sex relationships,” Razumilov wrote in a complaint published by Govorit Moskva on Wednesday.
“i can say after the passage of months that I’m mired in intimacy with a member of my personal intercourse and may’t get out,” his complaint keeps. “i have a consistent boyfriend and i don’t understand the way to give an explanation for it to my mother and father. After receiving the aforementioned message, my lifestyles has modified for the more serious and could by no means be everyday again.”
Razumilov accused Apple of “manipulatively pushing me towards homosexuality,” which precipitated him “ethical suffering and damage to intellectual health,” in his 1 million ruble ($15,three hundred) criticism.
