A St. Louis man is suing Apple Inc., among many others, over deaththreats he said we transmitted through his iPod. Fasten your seatbelts, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride.
Gregory McKenna apparently worked briefly as a male model for anagency in New York, which he says is a Mafia front. He went home to St.Louis when the agency stopped paying him. He returned to St. Louis in2000. The above-mentioned mobsters were displeased, and, says McKenna,sent two goons to threaten him and force him to return to NYC to workfor them as a model and homosexual sex slave.
Wait. It hasn’t even begun to get wierd yet.
McKenna told St. Louis police, who, he said, ignored his pleas forhelp. So he went to the FBI, who also ignored him. Then the Departmentof Justice. They’re all being sued, as is the mechanic who, he says,bugged his car, a private investigator who he says lied about a sweepfor bugs in his home.
Perhaps the police ignored McKenna because he also claimed thatApple put illegal receivers in an iPod Shuffle he bought on eBay in2005 *and* an iPod mini he bought new in 2006, which allowed saidmobsters to transmit death threats to him. In time to the music, onesupposes.
McKenna is representing himself in the matter, suing the 10 defendants for $14.3 million.
