A gay activist from Penarth has accused Apple of homophobia after his new iPhone 6 went bent in his pocket.
Clive Slackring, who turned gay on his 18th birthday told WalesOnCraic:
“I get this all the time wherever I go. It’s abuse on a national scale and it’s all the government’s fault. Can’t I just be gay and get on with my life? People are always having a pop at me. I go into Cardiff and what am I faced with? Bendy buses! I buy a new phone – what happens? It goes bendy in my pocket. I’m sick of this homophobia against me. I’m writing to my MP, whoever he is.”
Apple has come in for criticism of their new phone, which appears to buckle when kept inside pockets. A spokeswoman told WalesOnCraic:
“He’s gay? Yeah? And? What’s the problem?”
But Slackring was adamant that it is all part of Apple’s plan to rid the world of gay people.
“What do they expect us to do? Not phone people? I HAVE to have the latest technology but if it’s a homophobic piece of technology then I’m not having it. I want to speak to my mum please.”
“I’m single and you can find me on Grindr. My username is Slackring86 and I wash daily.”
