"I have a steady boyfriend and I don't know how to explain it to my parents. After receiving the aforementioned message, my life has changed for the worse and will never be normal again," Razumilov complained.
In a new episode of bizarre, a man from Russia has reportedly sued Apple for turning him gay. He sued the company after claiming a mysterious message sent to his iPhone turned him gay, according to a report from The Moscow Times. The man, identified as D. Razumilov, says that an anonymous English-language message was sent to a cryptocurrency app on his iPhone in 2017 urging him "don't judge without trying." Apparently, the message was attached to 69 units of Gay Currency, which seems to be some sort of cryptocurrency. Razumilov is seeking over $15,000 in damages from Apple for allegedly "turning him gay."
He claims the company, which makes the iPhone, caused him "moral suffering and harm to mental health," due to "manipulatively pushing me towards homosexuality." According to a complaint published by Russian radio station Govorit Moskova, Razumilov said "I thought, indeed, how can I judge something without trying it? And decided to try some same sex relationships."

So, after he supposedly tried out same-sex relationships and now Razumilov seems to have entered into a steady romantic partnership. However, he claims that this is a negative development. "I have a steady boyfriend and I don't know how to explain it to my parents. After receiving the aforementioned message, my life has changed for the worse and will never be normal again," Razumilov complained. "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."
this is the funniest headline I've seen all week 😂☠️⚰️— dani (@dani_2short) October 3, 2019
Razumilov claims that his iPhone is responsible for the alleged gay conversion, and he is due to argue his case in court on October 17. Now, the thing is, Apple has no stake in the GayCoin cryptocurrency, which is currently valued at less than two cents. Homophobia is still widespread in Russia and attacks on the LGBT community are, sadly, pretty common. However, people had a field day with this piece of news and took to social media to share their thoughts.

Darren Daniel commented: How can he sue if he has a boyfriend? Surely he's happy at being in a relationship. I'm suing online dating, because I'm married! Adam Fairlamb added: I bought an apple iPhone and it got me thinking about apples, I ate too many and become vegan, can I sue apple too? I miss a good steak. Peter Thomas wrote: I wish him, his lawyer and his boyfriend all the best. If you are going to sue one of the biggest grossing companies in the world, go big, £12k should see Apple calling in the official receiver by the end of next week.
He should blame...blame the money for getting that iPhone...or rather the company for paying him every months salary to purchase that iPhone...or whoever he inherited money from...don’t come with dirty tricks—be Proud wena!!🤣🤣— VR LeGo Niquey (@Nivero1) October 3, 2019
Orion Bobb added: Aren't ads usually garnered towards your searches and things you like? Maybe he was in the closet and Gaycoins finally gave him a reason to dip his fingers into the peanut butter jar. Jay Roko wrote: This is why Russia is so sad - they want to "disappear" gay people, so gay people have to come up with ridiculous excuses for being gay. Diane Yoder chimed in: Sad thing is he said this to save his life. Putin "disappears" gay people in Russia. If he "blames" it on the phone it means he's not gay and maybe he won't die.
This is hilarious 😂. Thanks for the laugh!— Skhumbuzo Mathenjwa (@smbero90) October 3, 2019
