Russian Steve Jobs Memorial Removed Following Tim Cook’s Coming Out

It’s always interesting to see what a steady diet of potatoes and vodka will do to a brain. Russian media reports say a big mock-up of an iPhone, erected in St. Petersburg as a monument to late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, has been taken down following Apple CEO Tim Cook’s announcement that he is gay.

Radio Free Europe Radio Liberty:

Russian Radio station Biznes-FM cited the company’s chief, Maksim Dolgopolov, as saying he had it removed in part to comply with a law banning the spread of “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations” among minors.

The monument contained an interactive screen displaying information about Jobs. It was erected on the grounds of an IT university in January 2013, as part of an initiative by a Russian company called Western European Financial Union.

Cook came out as gay in an essay published on October 30. Following Cook’s announcement, prominent St. Petersburg antigay activist Vitaly Milonov was quoted as saying Cook should be banned from Russia because he could bring AIDS, Ebola, or gonorrhea into the country.

There are no words.
