I wonder how all those who discriminate against people for being gay will treat Apple's CEO when he visits http://t.co/5UXOc6vGY9

Amazing to see the CEO of Apple come out. "I'm proud to be gay and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me." #TimCook

If Tim Cook truly wanted to come out in style, he'd upload a new Beyoncé album to all of our phones

I’d totally go gay for Tim Cook and a retina iMac. And maybe a new iPad.

I gave Tim Cook the gift of being gay and all I got in return was an overpriced piece of crap that shatters when I throw it on the ground

Tim Cook has come out as gay and I think it should be up to each individual state whether to keep selling Apple products.

Also: First person to use the headline, "Apple's Tim Cook: iGay," you're either fired or promoted. I haven't decided yet.
