Steve Jobs memorial in Russia removed after Tim Cook comes out as gay


A Russian memorial to Apple co-founder Steve Jobs has been removed after last week’s announcement by the company’s chief executive, Tim Cook, that he is gay. The roughly 6-foot iPhone statue was placed on a St. Petersburg university campus in January 2013 by a group of companies called ZEFS, according to Reuters. Jobs died in 2011. The monument was removed on Friday, ZEFS said in a statement, because it violated Russia’s law against “gay propaganda.”
