Apple CEO TimCook 'should be banned' from country Visitation - Russian politician

A Russian politician says Apple CEO Tim Cook 'should be banned' from entering the country after he came out as gay for the first time.

Mr. Cook made the announcement on Thursday, declaring his sexual orientation is one of the 'greatest gifts God has given me'.
The 53-year-old, said he had been open with many people about his sexuality for years but wanted to maintain a level of privacy in the public sphere.

Anti LGBT campaigner Vitaly Milonov reportedly suggested that head of the electronics giant could bring 'the Ebola virus, Aids or gonorrhea', drawing on his stereotypes of homosexuals.

According to FlashNord, the city legislator from St Petersburg said: 'what could he [Cook] bring us? The Ebola virus, Aids, gonorrhea? They all have unseemly ties over there. Ban him for life.'
