iPhone Statue Removed from University After CEO Gay Announcement

An iPhone-shaped memorial to Apple founder Steve Jobs has been removed from outside a Russian university campus after current CEO Tim Cook announced that he is gay. The 6ft-high statue had been put up outside a college in St Petersburg in January 2013 by a Russian group of companies called West European Financial Union (ZEFS) to honour Jobs. However, in a statement on Monday, ZEFS said they had to abide by a law combating ‘gay propaganda’ and that the memorial had been removed.
