Kids test ‘Bendgate’ by breaking loads of iPhone 6s in an Apple Store
Words fail me.
Today’s example of kids being really freaking dumb comes courtesy of two teens who decided to put the rumors of the iPhone 6 Plus bending to the test—by going into an Apple store and breaking thousands of dollars worth of hardware.
Scroll down for the full video.
Since the iPhone 6 was released 2 weeks ago, it’s been plagued by claims that it’s easy to accidentally bend, something multiple people have already put to the test in videos. But not like this.
Now, Kylie and Danny obviously aren’t the sharpest tools in the shed. Not only did they upload footage of themselves carrying out acts of criminal damage in an Apple store to YouTube, they also showed their faces, and referred to one another clearly by name.
The pair presumably eventually realized their actions might have consequences, and have deleted the original video. But the Internet never forgets. An automatic Reddit mirroring service means a video record of their monumental stupidity has been captured and shared publicly, for all the world to laugh at.
