Best Takes In-Store Display Cashing In On Heath Ledger's Death Very Seriously

WHO: Best Buy
WHAT: Hours after actor Heath Ledger’s death, a Best Buy store already had a table set up with his DVDs on sale, urging customers to “remember a great actor through his great performances.”
THE QUOTE: “Please be certain Best Buy takes matters of this nature very seriously. In reviewing your concerns with the management team at our Mission Valley store, they have concluded that the display was inappropriate in light of Mr. Ledger’s recent passing and have removed it from the sales floor.”
