Samsung sues its own brand ambassador for $1.6M for using an iPhone X → #

It’s not unusual for celebrities paid to promote Android brands to be caught using an iPhone. In many cases, they have been caught out on Twitter – like Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot.
But Samsung appears to take the matter more seriously than most: they are suing their own Russian brand ambassador for using an iPhone X for a massive $1.6M …
Reality TV show host and politician Ksenia Sobchak is the face of Samsung in Russia, and is required by contract to use a Samsung smartphone. But the Mirror reports that she was seen on a television interview using an iPhone X.
I don’t blame them. Who would, given the option, use a Samsung phone 😜.
However, you’d probably either make a better effort to hide it, or just not become a Brand Ambassador.
