CeeLo Green Made A Terrible Tech Joke This Weekend.

Remember CeeLo Green?

This weekend, a footage showed him in a music recording studio talking on his smartphone before it explodes and he collapses on the ground.

 
Of course, you should expect such footage to garner a lot of views,  with a lot of celebrities throwing jabs at Samsung:

However, CeeLo Green took to Facebook Live on Saturday night to address the footage, in his words:

‘I just want to let everybody know that I am alive, that I’m well, and I’m OK,’ he said in the video. 

‘Truthfully, I’m really upset that anybody had to be emotionally disturbed by what they saw today. 

‘What you saw today was a clip from a smaller video that we were shooting for a new project I’m doing called Gnarly Davidson.

In other words, it was a publicity stunt, a very bad one at that, and if there’s one thing the internet hates more than a celebrity tragedy, it’s being tricked about a celebrity tragedy. Fans’ concerned prayers quickly turned to anger, as they criticized the singer for using Samsung’s very real Galaxy Note 7 debacle – and the ongoing smartphone fears it inspired – as a tool to promote his upcoming project.

    A very expensive joke. Samsung has the right to sue him for defamation of image?

    1. ỌBÁDÁRÀ says:

      … WELL, SAMSUNG CAN’T SUE HIM FOR THE FOLLOWING REASONS :
      1) THE VIDEO NEVER SHOWED PRODUCT NAME OR LOGO
      2) NO OFFICIAL STATEMENT POINTING TO SAMSUNG
      3) THE VIDEO DIDN’T POINT TO ANY BRAND NAMES.
      4) IT WAS TECH BLOGS THAT WERE MENTIONING SAMSUNG.
      TO SUE HIM WILL AMOUNT TO CHILDISHNESS AND DEFAMATION OF SAMSUNG BY SAMSUNG.
      BY THE WAY, I TRUST MY SAMSUNG, BUSY DEALING WITH MORE IMPORTANT PROJECTS…
