“But Apple fans are on the case. As you can see in the picture above, Apple fans are uniting to counter-protest Westboro’s homophobic, hate-filled picketing,” Martinelli reports. “We don’t think even the counter-protesting is what Steve would have wanted, but you can hardly fault Apple fans for their anger.
