Martha Stewart Tweet Shames Apple

First a Kanye rant against Jimmy Kimmel, then this.

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:
