Martha Stewart Breaks iPad And Goes Off On Apple Via Twitter
Published By: Tara ClemSeptember 28, 2013
Looks like Twitter is the most popular forum for celebrities to take out their frustrations on everything! Now domestic diva Martha Stewart broke her beloved iPad and took to twitter to flip out on Apple about it. Miss diva Martha really expected Apple to come to her house and pick it up and fix it….uhhh, really Martha? Come on Apple, I’m sure with the launch of the new iphone, you aren’t busy or anything!!!
In Martha’s tweet, she basically said she’s upset that Apple didn’t send anyone over to fix it, and that even Apple founder, Steve Jobs, gave her the iPad himself!
‘I am still waiting for an apple rep to come pick up my IPad. No action yey (sic),’ she tweeted to her nearly 2.9 million followers on Thursday, a day after breaking the device.
‘I just dropped my iPad on the ground and shattered two glass corners. What to do? does one call Apple to come and pick it up or do I take it?,’ she tweeted on Wednesday.
Her litany of tweets elicited predictable jokes on Twitter, many of which made fun of her expectation that someone would come retrieve the tablet.
Consumers have to take their iPads to an Apple store to have it fixed or exchanged, depending on the warranty. Many third party vendors also repair broken screens.
At one point, she appeared to calm down and dismiss her outburst as a joke.
‘So is it time to put out the fires and admit I was just pissed off at the fact my precious ipad shattered and I wanted to make light of it??’ she said.
But Stewart’s tweets then appeared to draw the ire of Apple public relations unit.
She tweeted later on Thursday: ‘i cannot believe that Apple Public Relations is mad at me for tweeting about my Ipad and how to get it fixed! steve jobs gave it to me!’
‘i wish i could explain everything here on twitter about the broken IPad, the stolen IPhone, the silly joke about repairs and my frustration!’
She then vowed to deal with the issue silently, but her tweets already had gone viral and provoked responses across the Twitter-verse.
A representative for Stewart declined to comment, while an Apple spokeswoman did not return a call seeking comment.
