Last Thursday, Jason Bateman was in line with 2,000 other people for the new iPhone when an Apple employee brought him inside the store so he could skip the line and get his first. On Twitter Bateman said the crowd was cool about it…
“There wasn’t one boo. Not one hiss. The Apple guy brought me in away from the paparazzi. Period. I was content in line. I wish I’d stayed.”
Well obviously it wasn’t “away from the paparazzi” because you can see the pictures right here. It’s not like they tunneled into the store. But was he telling the truth about the crowd? Well, no. At least not according to Us magazine…
“It was loud, passive-aggressive anger. There was a chorus of boos and then people shouting, ‘What?’ and ‘We’ve been here for hours!’ We were patiently waiting before then [and] that just made everyone’s blood boil.”
Bateman arrived to the L.A. Apple store around 4:45 A.M., and initially waited “like everybody else.” But around 10 A.M., he was escorted inside first.
I’m against rape except in cases of self-defense or revenge, so I wish this story was about Diora Baird because after 5 hours in a line I bet you could use one of those bullshit “breaking point” defense claims and totally get away with it.
