If u view this post on a iPad, iPhone, or iPod, you will have no idea what products are being talked about since the video is flash and Ed provides no info.

Pointing out this error is racist and sexist and platform-elitist.

Of course, I’m a white male who prefers Android — so if anyone here is a h8tr, it’s me.

Matt says it’s more innocent, huh?
I bet if it were a conservative start he wouldn’t be so quick to defend the mistake.
Besides, I don’t care who’s endorsing the product.
You show yourself to be a sham when stuff like this happens.
So even if a conservative were to have done it, it is still bad form.
