And now a giant iPhone constitutes “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations.”
A monument to Apple founder Steve Jobs outside Russia’s IT University has been taken down, apparently because its creators were afraid it violates the recent Russian law against “gay propaganda.”
Why? Because Tim Cook, the current head of Apple, announced last week that he’s gay.
It was built last year by a group of companies called ZEFS.
“After Apple CEO Tim Cook publicly called for sodomy, the monument was taken down to abide to the Russian federal law protecting children from information promoting denial of traditional family values,” a ZEFS statement said.
