Patriotic Russians are probably regretting buying that gold plated iPhone engraved with Vladimir Putin's face.

Following Tim Cook's public announcement that he is gay, a Steve Jobs memorial in St. Petersburg has been dismantled by ZEFS, the group that commissioned it, claiming that it is now considered "gay propaganda."

"After Apple CEO Tim Cook publicly called for sodomy, the monument was taken down to abide to the Russian federal law protecting children from information promoting denial of traditional family values," the group said in a statement.

The interactive memorial was erected in January 2013, to honor Jobs, who died in October 2011.

The director of ZEFS also said that Edward Snowden leaks about the NSA using Apple products to spy on people were also a factor in this decision, according to Vocativ.
