Im neither a gay rights supporter nor anti-gay; I just think sex-orientation is a private matter.
Anyway Apple products, no matter whether they are perfect or not, are innovative gadgets that have changed the way we communicate and reshaped the global smartphone market.
As long as Cook and his boyfriend dont harm other people, they should not be the targets of such abuse.
