Apple CEO Tim Cook is living proof that being gay doesn’t mean you can dance

Out Apple boss Tim Cook is defying stereotypes again – by showing that some gay men really, really can’t dance.

The tech boss became the only openly gay CEO of a top 1000 US company when he came out last October.

In a number GIFs surfacing online today, the tech boss can be seen dancing badly at an event outside the company’s HQ in Cupertino – as ‘Happy’ singer Pharrell Williams played to celebrate Earth Day.

Internet users have flooded to admire his “goofy dad dancing”.

Unfortunately, longer videos of the boss’s dancing have been mercilessly suppressed – but live on in GIF form.

Mr Cook – whose sexuality was the subject of much speculation prior to his announcement – had said last year: “I’m proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me.”

It emerged earlier this week that the Russian version of Siri refuses to discuss homosexuality.

In a feature described by Apple as a bug, when asked how to register a gay marriage, it responded: “I will pretend I didn’t hear that”
