Best Buy Apologizes For Surprising Customers With In-Store Porn

Nothing like a little unexpected graphic pornography to dampen a family shopping trip to Best Buy, as one woman complained after such an image popped up on display TVs while she was browsing with her grandchildren.

News Channel 7 in South Carolina says Best Buy is issuing an apology after the woman claimed that a sexual image she describes as being harder core than simple porn showed up on a store TV.

“It was extremely, extremely pornographic image,” said the customer. “I think even the word ‘pornographic’ doesn’t cover it. I have never watched pornography, so I don’t know what else you can see there, but to me, I really felt extremely violated.”

She says the image stayed on the screen for several minutes until a manager came over to take it down, but that in that time, several families saw it. She says the manager blamed someone using Best Buy’s Wi-Fi to upload the offending picture, and that similar incidents had happened before but that the store was unable to do anything about stopping it.

Best Buy’s corporate office says:

“Two individuals accessed our store’s wireless signal to broadcast inappropriate content on a smart television display. In both cases, we worked immediately to disable the inappropriate content. We greatly apologize for this unfortunate incident and we are working to ensure that it does not happen again.”

Despite the apology, the customers has filed a complaint with police for dissemination of pornographic material.
