Lawyer Blames Apple for His Porn Addiction

A typo while entering "Facebook" into Apple's browser led him into a downward spiral of porn addiction, he claims.

A Nashville lawyer has filed a 50-page complaint in Federal Court against Apple this week, claiming the company should be responsible for protecting him from his porn addiction on their devices. Chris Sevier claims that a chance misspelling in Apple's browser led him to "fuckbook.com" when he meant to log on to Facebook, causing him to see "pornographic images that appealed to his biological sensibilities as a male and led to an unwanted addiction with adverse consequences." Sevier requests in his complaint that Apple should sell all their products with an installed filter that blocks all internet porn; if a buyer over the age of 18 wished to unlock the internet, they would then have to contact Apple, sign a form acknowledging the pitfalls of pornography, and receive a code to remove the filter. Sevier's typo-ridden complaint, in which he spells "hormones" as "harmonies," also alleges that porn "leads to American girls traveling abroad to be abducted and cast into sex trafficking." He further blames his viewing porn on Apple browsers for ruining his marriage due to his "desiring younger, more beautiful girls featured in porn videos than his wife, who was no longer 21." Apple has yet to respond, but it's safe to say the case will likely be thrown out in court. In an unrelated incident, Sevier was arrested last month for stalking country music singer John Rich.
