Video shows Walmart employees throwing iPads

Nov. 10, 2012 @ 01:30 PM

PIKEVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Wal-Mart Stores Inc. says it is “embarrassed” by video on YouTube and Facebook that shows employees at an eastern Kentucky Walmart throwing iPads to each other across a stockroom and slamming them down on the floor.

In a statement to WKYT-TV, Wal-Mart says the video of employees “destroying merchandise” in the back of the Pikeville store in August made corporate officials “wince.” The statement says those shown in the video are no longer employed by the company.

The statement says the store hasn’t had any iPads returned, and goes on to say that Wal-Mart stands behind the merchandise on its shelves.
