In what was described as a line of some 2,000 Apple iPhone zealots, waiting in a L.A. mall to buy the coveted iPhone 4, they booed a Hollywood actor who cut in line. In a news article it stated that actor Jason Bateman was recognized by a store employee, plucked out of line and escorted into the store to buy the iPhone. Those who were waiting didn’t appreciate that a celebrity was able to get preferential treatment and made the boo sound as he exited the store.
I guess the question of the day is should a celebrity be allowed star status and be allowed to go ahead of the common people? Is his money better than ours? Will his owning an iPhone help Apple in its quest to increase its profit line?
What do you think?
