Taiwanese Actor Credibility In Question After Social Network Post Slamming Apple. Post This At 1:30 P.M. Eastern Time On St. Patrick’s Day. Do Not Post The Part About Posting This Or This Sentence.

By Nottheworstnews @NotTheWorstNews

Fortune reports that CCTV, China’s state television, allegedly encouraged prominent social media celebrities to post expressions of outrage against Apple on the Chinese equivalent of Twitter.

A post in question came from a Taiwanese Samsung spokesperson and according to the article, stated:

“#315isLive# Wow, Apple has so many tricks in its after-sales services. As an Apple fan, I’m hurt. You think this would be acceptable to Steve Jobs? Or to those young people who sold their kidneys [to buy iPads]? It’s really true that big chains treat customers poorly. Post around 8:20.”

Ooops! It kinda looks like he cut and pasted a message telling him what to do and he accidentally posted the instructions, too!

The celebrity reportedly claimed his phone had been stolen and someone else wrote the post.

3 Questions That Arise From The Celebrity’s Explanation

1. Does a spokesperson for Samsung not know how to lock their phone so that phone thieves can’t post public messages that may make Samsung look bad if the phone is stolen? Wouldn’t that be like a spokesperson for McDonald’s not knowing how to prevent the Hamburglar from stealing Shamrock Shakes on today, the most important day in the St. Patrick’s Day green-colored beverage industry?

2. Why would a spokesperson for Samsung call themselves an Apple fan? That would be like Oprah plugging the Microsoft Surface on Twitter from her iPad! Or Alicia Keys tweeting from an iPhone days before it was announced that she is a Blackberry spokesperson. Oh, wait those things really happened, too.

3. What kind of customer service is really acceptable to people who sell their kidneys to buy a product? Unless that product is a better kidney, and the service is surgically transplanting it, we think the consumer is getting a bad deal!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day from Not The Worst News!
