A statue of an iPhone in Russia has been dismantled over CEO Tim Cook‘s sexual preference.
The statue, located on a university campus in St. Petersburg, was broken down after Cook came out in the open in a letter last week.
In a statement, ZEFS, which according to its website owns construction, advertising, and finance enterprises in St. Petersburg, describes Tim Cook’s revelation “a public call to sodomy.”
ZEFS said Monday it was taking down the statue because it violated Russia’s controversial law protecting minors from homosexual propaganda. The law has been condemned by critics as a means of repressing sexual minorities in the country.
