Martha Stewart Tweet Shames Apple

First a Kanye rant against Jimmy Kimmel, then this. posted on

Miss manners, the doyenne of domesticity, Martha Stewart cast aside etiquette and tweet shamed the most powerful technology company in the world Thursday evening.

It all started earlier in the day, when Stewart tweeted that she broke two glass corners of her iPad and wasn’t sure what to do — bring it to the Apple store to get fixed or have a rep pick it up. A while later she tweeted what appeared to be a few jokes (albeit passive aggressive ones) about waiting for an Apple rep to arrive.

Except Apple apparently didn’t find it funny. An Apple executive or representative must have complained to Stewart about the tweets. Here’s the original tweets and what ensued:

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?

I am still waiting for an apple rep to come pick up my IPad. No action yey

Maybe I have had a good entrepreneurial idea? Apple Now? Like same day delivery from Amazon? I think I am on to something. Same day fixit!!!

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??

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!

but it is impossible so i will deal with it all silently and hope that apple will fix everything so i can function again with proper tools
