Martha Stewart has clarified that she does not "feud" with Apple after slamming the company in a series of Twitter posts. The TV personality, who apparently was upset after an iPad which the late Steve Jobs gave her got broken, tweeted about the problem on Twitter.
"I just dropped my iPad on the ground and shattered two glass corners. What to do? Does one call Apple to come and pick it up or do I take it?" she asked her 2.8 million followers on September 26. The next day, she wrote again, "I am still waiting for an apple rep to come pick up my IPad. No action yey."
"Maybe I have had a good entrepreneurial idea? Apple Now? Like same day delivery from Amazon? I think I am on to something. Same day fixit!!!" Stewart added. She wrote again hours later, "Is it time to put out the fires and admit I was just pissed off at the fact that my precious ipad shattered and I wanted to make light of it."
In one of her tweets, Stewart said that Apple was not happy about her tweets. "I cannot believe that Apple Public Relations is mad at me for tweeting about my Ipad and how to get it fixed! Steve Jobs gave it to me!" she said.
On Friday morning, September 27, Stewart called into "Today" show and talked about the issue with Willie Geist, Al Roker and Savannah Guthrie. Stewart said that she knew Apple did not make house-calls. "Of course I know that. I've been in Apple stores!" she said on the phone.
"Twitter is very, very interesting because there are people who love it when you joke, and there are people who take you seriously and don't have a clue. So it's been going on and on and on and it's actually very fun," she told the show's hosts. "I'm not having a feud with Apple."
