A Russian man is suing Apple after claiming his iPhone turned him gay, according to the Moscow Times.


The man, who has been identified as D Razumilov, told a local radio station that he became “mired in same-sex relationships” earlier this year after receiving 69 GayCoins on a cryptocurrency payment app he downloaded onto his iPhone in 2017. 

“I thought, indeed, how can I judge something without trying it?” the man wrote in a complaint published by the station. “And decided to try same-sex relationships.”


“I have a steady boyfriend and I don’t know how to explain it to my parents,” read the complaint. “After receiving the aforementioned message, my life has changed for the worse and will never be normal again.”

The man is now asking for more than $15,000 in damages, or roughly a million rubles, from Apple.
