iPhone 4 vs. HTC EVO 4G Video Causes Best Buy To Suspend Employee
An employee of Best Buy made and posted a video to YouTube about the iPhone 4 verses the HTC EVO 4G in a cartoon style video whereby an electronics store rep tries to convince a customer to purchase the HTC EVO 4G over the iPhone 4, you can view the video below.
However, according to an article over on Gizmodo by Jason Chen and by way of NBC Action News, Best Buy wasn’t amused by the employee’s video and demanded that Best Buy employee Brian Maupin remove the video from YouTube, which he declined to do.
The reason for Maupin refusing to remove said video was because it didn’t mention Best Buy anywhere in the footage. However as a result, Best Buy has suspended Maupin and may fire him.
Seems to me that Best Buy is overstepping the mark with this one, what comes next, suspending workers if they upload a video to YouTube that mentions a mobile phone? Or is it just because it is the iPhone 4? You can check out the video below (does contain profanity) and let us know if you think Best Buy’s action is just or not.
