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—which came with a note: “Don’t judge until you try.” “I thought, in truth, how can I judge something without trying? I decided to try same-sex relationships,” the complainant wrote. “Now I have a boyfriend and I do not know how to explain this to my parents.” 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.”
