A YouTube video has gone viral, showing three Wal-Mart employees throwing and kicking iPads around at a company warehouse (supposedly in Kentucky). At the start of the video, a man says, “This is why you don’t buy an iPad from Wal-mart, and the iPad abuse begins. One worker slammed a tablet to the ground and said, “Oh, whoops, sorry about that iPad. Hope nobody buys that.”
The video already wracked up 378,198 views as of early Saturday. A rep for Wal-Mart has confirmed the men really were store employees.A rep from Wal-Mart’s corporate office has responded to the YouTube video that showed some of their employees throwing and dropping boxes of iPads.
She said, “We’ve seen the video of several nightshift associates destroying merchandise in the back of one of our stores in August and, as anyone can image, it made us wince.” The video was recorded in August, but it was just uploaded to YouTube last Thursday.
