If you use Twitter and/or Facebook, it’s only natural every once in a while to want to vent about your frustrations. It doesn’t matter if you have two followers on Twitter or if you have thousands of friends on Facebook – a bad day is a bad day when it’s time to gripe to the masses. LeBron James recently proved this fact perfectly. James, the NBA superstar from the Miama Heat, recently had a bad experience with his Samsung Galaxy phone and he decided to send out a tweet about it to his approximately 12 million followers.
So, why was LeBron so upset in the first place? Apparently, his phone (many believe he uses the Galaxy Note 3) randomly decided to delete all of its contents and leave him in a bad spot. Here’s what the tweet said: “My phone just erased everything it had in it and rebooted. One of the sickest feelings I’ve had in my life!!!”
Think Before You Tweet…
If you’ve been there before, you know the feeling when you realize everything you had in your phone is gone without a trace. Normally, there wouldn’t be any problem with someone tweeting out their frustration with their phone – but LeBron James just happens to be one of Samsung’s key endorsers. I wonder what they thought of the tweet.
Big surprise or not, James later deleted his tweet and replaced it with this one instead: “Close call. Wheew! Got all my info back. Gamer! Lol.”
Do you think endorsers should be honest when the product they support doesn’t work correctly? Or, do you think they’re being paid enough to just shut up and smile?
