A Russsian man is suing Apple for one million rubles for receiving GayCoin instead of bitcoin that he ordered. The man alleges that he received GayCoin cryptocurrency with a note saying, "Don't judge until you try." He claims Apple pushed him towards homosexuality and it has caused him mental and moral damage. The court will hear the complaint on 17th October.

According to a BBC report, a Russian man is claiming that Apple manipulatively pushed him towards a same-sex relationship. He claims that he received GayCoin cryptocurrency instead of bitcoin. He says that he received a note saying, “Don’t judge until you try.” Homosexuality was decriminalized in Russia back in 1993, but there is still a lot of prejudice against people with different sexual orientations.

He filed the lawsuit on 20th Septemeber, claiming that Apple had caused him mental and moral damages. According to the complaint, now he has a boyfriend, which he finds tough to explain to his parents. So far, Apple has not made any official comments about the lawsuit.

Russia passed a law in 2013, which bans the spreading of “gay propaganda” in the country. This law prohibits promotions of non-traditional lifestyles. The Russian man claims that when he received the note with GayCoin, he tried to have a same-sex relationship and now says that he can’t return back to being “normal.” The court will hear the case on 17th October.
