There must be some kind of a shake up happening at Apple these days because they are suddenly getting a boatload of bad press. This time the news is nothing-less than shocking.
A woman trying to buy a few iPhones at her local Apple store didn’t understand their strict two iPhone policy, mostly because she doesn’t speak English, only Filipino.
“My mom says she don’t know why they called the police, because she doesn’t understand what they are talking about,” said the woman’s 12-year-old daughter, “She was scared, she didn’t understand,” and that’s when cops put the tase to the poor woman.
Apparently, mom purchased two iPhones and then decided to buy two more as Christmas gifts, however when she ordered the extra iPhones online and went to pick them up the Apple Store employees refused to let her have her paid for items, remembering her previous buy. When she demanded her items, most likely in Filipino, employees refused and called police who tossed the woman out of the store and then proceeded to shock the living crap out of her.
Xiaojie Li, of Newton, said she is embarrassed by Monday’s incident that occurred at the Pheasant Lane Mall Apple Store in New Hampshire.
Her daughter said mom bought two iPhones last Friday, and then returned to the store to pick up two more iPhones she ordered online, and that’s when employees put their foot down, “The management of the store asked us to have her removed. The officer approached her, told her she wasn’t welcome in the store, and she refused to leave,” said Nashua Police Capt. Bruce Hansen.
The store then issued a stay-away order against Li.
A video posted on YouTube shows Li and police officers on the floor outside the Apple store at the Nashua mall. The crackle of the Taser and Li’s screams can be heard on the video.
