Apple Sued for ‘Destroying a Marriage’ by Not Censoring Porn on Their Devices

Apple Sued for ‘Destroying a Marriage’ by Not Censoring Porn on Their Devices

Everyone wants to sue Apple these days – and of the various lawsuits we’ve covered over the years, this one might be the most ridiculous of all: a Nashville man sued Apple because they didn’t prevent him from using pornography, which in turn caused him to destroy his marriage. Yup, seriously.

Apparently this man’s porn addiction isn’t his fault – it’s Apple’s fault, because Apple doesn’t censor the internet. You just can’t make this shit up. According to a 50-page filing complaint Apple, the company’s reckless refusal to block porn is more responsible for his porn addiction than his apparent lack of self-control (and lack of respect for his former wife).

From Macworld UK:

Tennessee lawyer Chris Sevier, Above The Law reports, has filed a bizarre, typo-riddled 50-page complaint that demands that Apple protect him (and all other American men) from the dangers of pornography, or be taken to court. “If Apple agrees to sell its devices ‘on safe mode’ before trial, the Plaintiff will terminate this litigation,” the filing states.

Sevier wants Apple to install porn filters on all of its devices, thus preventing users from ‘accidentally’ viewing explicit content online. If an Apple fan wants to view pornography, under Sevier’s scheme, they would have to contact Apple and request a password to unlock unfiltered content. (This would only be provided if the owner was over 18.)

The lengthy complaint cites numerous benefits of the plan, from improving society’s outlook on sexual relationships to setting an example “for device makers all over the world”. Somewhat ambitiously, Sevier also attempts to blame the sex trafficking of American girls travelling abroad on the availability of internet pornography, and even argues that reducing the supply of pornography would help adult content providers to raise their prices and improve profits.

I’ve got a better idea, Mr. Sevier: Have a bit of self-control and DON’T VIEW PORN IF YOU SUSPECT IT COULD DAMAGE YOUR RELATIONSHIP! This might be the most absurd, obscene lawsuit ever filed against Apple – and I hope to God this man gets laughed out of court, as he deserves.

Filtering the internet to guard against someone’s irresponsible addiction to boobies is simply not Apple’s job. Period. Right?!

    I weep for the human race. We are utterly doomed to self destruction by the absolute stupidity of far to many of our species.
