Customer “Outed” by Best Buy Worker on Facebook

A Best Buy worker allegedly used a customer’s cell phone to announce that he is “Coming Out”.

Shortly after Rich Dewberry traded his old cellphone for a new one at Best Buy in Colorado, the worker used Dewberry’s old phone to post a status update to Dewberry’s still-logged-in Facebook account, announcing, “I am gay. Im coming out.”

Dewberry is not Gay and apparently forgot to log out of Facebook.

Best Buy reportedly told Dewberry that the employee has been fired reported MSN.com.

Dewberry is left explaining to his social network that he’s still straight. “I feel I’ve been humiliated,” he says. “Yeah, no one wants to be outed as a Best Buy customer” he said.
