Samsung Celebrity Spokesman LeBron James Says His Galaxy Note Makes Him Sick

“My phone just erased everything it had in it and rebooted,” NBA superstar LeBron James tweeted earlier today. “One of the sickest feelings I’ve ever had in my life!!!”

Hey, that does sound frustrating. Who can blame him for tweeting his frustration with his Galaxy Note phablet?

There was only one problem.

LeBron James is paid by Samsung to endorse the Note, the very smartphone that just deleted all of his data and led to the “sickest feeling” James had ever felt in his life.

Needless to say, the tweet has since been deleted. But how does this keep happening? Celebrities paid by Samsung to endorse their smartphones — but who have been caught using iPhones instead — include Ellen DeGeneres, David Beckham, and even T-Mobile’s CEO.

How bad are Samsung’s products that celebrities don’t want to use them even when they are paid literally millions of dollars to do so?
