Another weird lawsuit was filed by a Russian man. Oddly enough, he claims that Apple forced him to have non-traditional sexual relationships.
Three years ago, this young man downloaded a cryptocurrency payment app from App Store. This summer an anonymous transferred him 69 virtual tokens called GayCoins. The transaction had the following comment, “Don’t judge until you try”.
“I thought, indeed, how can I judge something without trying it? And decided to try same-sex relationships”, the Moscovite wrote.
In his words, Apple “pushed him towards homosexuality”. He says that after a passage of two months, “He’s mired in intimacy” and already has a boyfriend. The plaintiff also mentions that “His life has changed for the worse and he doesn’t know how to explain it to his parents”.
Such peculiar lawsuits that are being filed to justify oneself and make a lot of money have been in style for a long time.
Let us remind you of similar cases that once were popular, too. One of them was when some American grandma sued McDonald’s and received more than a million-dollar compensation. Sitting in the car, she spilled hot coffee on her lap after carelessly placing the cup between her legs.
An even older (circa 1950s) case is about an American housewife who was trying to dry her wet cat in a microwave. The cat died, and its owner got a major compensation because the manufacturer didn’t specify in the instruction manual that it was forbidden to dry pets there.
