after an angry email i sent to best buy on the first of july, i got this email in response the same day:


Hello Mr. Whittington,


Thank you for taking the time to contact the executive offices at Best Buy’s corporate headquarters. Your email was received by our offices and forwarded to my attention to address.


I can relate to your concern over this story and the reaction it has received. Brian Maupin is an aspiring film-maker who is also a Best Buy employee.  This is an important situation for us because it involves balancing our social media guidelines with a commitment to creating a supportive environment for our employees.  That’s why our investigation into this matter will take some time before it’s concluded, and why we look forward to seeing Brian back on the job come Monday.


Thank you again for contacting Best Buy to share your concerns about this matter.  Your feedback will help us build a better customer experience for all our customers.  We appreciate your patronage and hope you will let us know of any future questions.

:) if this were a race, maximum pc, i'd be winning! although, i suppose they changed their minds about him coming back monday.



I find it so funny that Best Buy acts like this guy had broke some kind of serious law and are treating him like he's a criminal. He has opinions about subjects just like everyone else, and he will express them in any manner he chooses.

Best Buy fails anyway. I am not sure how this person's portrayal of the Cell-Phone Wars is going to inhibit Best Buy's sales.


Ignorance is man's greatest enemy.



Is best buy taking things a bit too seriously? Yes. But to say they are treating him like a criminal is a bit much. They didn't have him arrested. They aren't prosecuting him. They merely suspended him until they could review the situation. They reviewed the situaiton and decided that the offense didn't merit being fired (most likely because of the heavy public support, but hopefully because they felt he was of no threat to their business.) People are fired every day for far less than this, I'm not sure why everyone thinks this is a legal matter.



Wow, that shit is funny...
