    When a Russian speaker tried to chat to Apple's virtual assistant Siri about gay clubs, he got an unusual response - which Apple maintains was due to a bug.

    A video posted earlier this week showing a conversation in Russian between Siri and a man who identifies himself as Alex has now been widely shared on YouTube and Reddit. Here's a translation:

    Alex: "Siri, gay clubs around me?

    Siri: "I would have turned red (blushed) if I could."

    Alex: "How to register a gay marriage in the UK?"

    Siri: [Silence]

    Alex: "How to register a gay marriage in the UK?"

    Siri: "I will pretend I haven't heard it."

    You get the idea.

    My Samsung s4 learns new words or new spellings quite readily.
    Except the words- gay (usually wants to change it to hay or guy), sex, cock, ass and fuck.
