!! OMG, Apple’s Soviet Russia version of Siri expresses her homophobic values, company claims it’s a ‘bug’ !!


Apple’s in hot water after their Russian version of Siri seems to express the country’s anti-gay values as normal, and Apple doesn’t seem to want to take credit for why that shit is happening with their product:

Apple is refusing to explain how and why the Russian language version of its voice-controlled virtual assistant, Siri, provided homophobic answers to queries relating to gay or lesbian topics.
The allegations first came to light when a Russian man called Alex, who lives in London, uploaded a video to YouTube appearing to show Siri either evading questions or expressing a negative response.
Alex asked questions such as: “Are there any gay bars around me?”, “tell me about gay marriage?” and “how do I register a gay marriage in England?”
Siri’s answers? “I would have turned red if I could”, “you are so rude!” and “I will pretend I haven’t heard”.
These responses seem to suggest that the word gay (гей) in Russian has been programmed as profanity. Swear words in the English language version receive similar responses.
However, the following more nuanced response, doesn’t fit that pattern.
“Is gay marriage normal?”
The response? “I believe this emotion should be considered negative.”

Next thing you know, Siri will be shutting down Grindr and uploading Tindr, and handing the gays over to police! I wonder how out, gay Apple CEO Tim Cook feels about all this?

According to TMZ, No Doubt frontwoman Gwen Stefani will take the reins and replace Xtina as a judge on the upcoming Season 7 of ‘The Voice’. This should really cut their facial-tanner/chunky pink and black weave/carb budget for production of The Voice to one-tenth of what it was before, already boosting a profit for them before anything goes to camera!

TMZ has learned Gwen has signed on to be a judge on “The Voice.” Multiple sources connected to the show tell us … No Doubt’s lead singer will be on Season 7 … which starts taping in June.

!! OMG, some unsigned talent: Canelo the howler monkey is the golden voice of Death Metal !!

Canelo the howler monkey is putting all the Death Metal singers out there to shame. You’re welcome record labels!
His soothing song can travel for up to 3 miles through dense forest, and doesn’t even need a touch of autotune. (No wonder he gets all the ladies!) Someone find him a recording contract, STAT. Maybe he and that spitting sass of an Ibex can make beautiful music together!
Hear him for yourself, after the jump!

[[ OMG, there’s more: JUMP IN to read the rest ]]
