While many of us found ourselves confused when a random song began to play on our iPhones, most didn’t look at their screen and freak out because of the album-cover photo, most freaked out because there was a mysterious U2 album on it. In Russia, though, the free album that was given to all iPhone users who updated their phones, was seen as violating anti-gay propaganda laws because the album cover shows the band’s drummer Larry Mullen Jr with his 18-year-old son Elvis—both shirtless.. The concern comes form Alexander Starovoitov, a member of the right-wing LDPR party, who felt that the album “Songs of Innocence” ‘corrupted’ youths. Starovoitov says he’s ready to sue Apple for breaking the controversial and discriminatory Russian anti-gay law. “I, like many Russian citizens, own an iPhone. In 2014, the band U2 forced my phone to download their new album. Their cover album depicts two men, which in my view, depicts the expression of a non-traditional sexual relationship to each other.
