Watch: Man Goes Off and Smashes Up Apple Store

A man in France was not happy with his service at Apple and he showed his displeasure in a pretty over the top hissy fit. The man wore a protective glove and used a steel ball to smash up at least 12 phones and a MacBook.

After taking out 10 or so phones, he says to the camera:

“Apple is a company that ‘violated’ European consumers’ rights. They refused to reimburse me, I told them: ‘Give me my money back’. They said no. So you know what’s happening? This is happening!”

If all of those phones were the mid-tier iPhone 7, that would be $8,999.88 worth of damage. Throw in a base model MacBook at $1299 and we’re lookin at around $10,298.88 in destruction. In the United States, that would be felony vandalism and could carry several years in prison.

In the longer video below you can see him get in a tussle with security guards and half-heartedly attempt a getaway.

Honestly, there are many causes that might warrant such a brazen display of civil disobedience. Having a dispute with customer service that could probably be resolved by constantly asking for a superior on the phone isn’t really one of them. This guy’s dumb.
