A Russian Duma deputy has accused Apple of promoting “gay propaganda” to minors.

Last September, Apple gave away more than 500 million copies of U2's Songs of Innocence. The album was automatically downloaded to the accounts of iTunes users worldwide as a gift.

The album cover features a shirtless Larry Mullen Jr., the band's drummer, embracing his 18-year-old son, Elvis, who is also shirtless. The band has said that the image represents “how holding on to your own innocence is a lot harder than holding on to someone else's.”

Alexander Starovoitov, a member of the conservative LDPR Party, argues that the cover image promotes sex between men.

“Just like many citizens of the Russian Federation, I am an iPhone owner,” Starovoitov is quoted as saying by Russian daily Izvestia. “In 2014, tracks by U2 were uploaded in a viral way to my Music folder in iTunes, with the album cover featuring what I believe to be two men engaged in a manifestation of non-traditional sexual relations.”

Anti-gay sentiment runs high in Russia, where lawmakers two years ago outlawed public discussions of LGBT issues to minors, labeling it “propaganda.”

Apples faces fines of up to 1 million rubles (nearly $20,000) if convicted of violating the law.
