Samsung to Donate to a Lobbyist Group -HSUS for Ellen-Gag me!!!

When the picture came across my FB news feed, I was shocked and shared it immediately!!! Then I went on a search to verify it…Good God, it’s true…Samsung supports animal cruelty and lobbyists and joined the Animal Rights Nazi Gestopo team…You’d think they would make a donation to their favorite charity not Ellen’s-she got paid…I guess they don’ realize the amount of business they might and will likely loose!!! I used to watch Ellen -turned her off years ago…Turned Rachael Rae off…Careful which celebrities I support anymore that’s for sure!!! I myself prefer to use my camera-Sony…Happy as hell my computer is Toshiba…and when it’s time to replace my cell phone or any other tech product-it won’t be with a Samsung…And I just put a piece of black electrical tape over ‘Samsung’ on my TV…I won’t buy any Pepsi product…Threw out my Nike sneakers…I won’t go to Subway…Petco and PetSmart don’t need my business -sold out years ago to HSUS and been years since I have stepped in either store…AZA zoos joined in yet their elephants are all under attack…You don’t sell-out to your enemy!!!

Samsung says the Oscars selfie that went viral was a “surprise for everyone,” after reports it was part of a pre-planned marketing stunt by the company, a sponsor of the Academy Awards.

But the South Korean tech giant, which earned huge publicity when Ellen DeGeneres used a Samsung device to take the photo, said it would donate $3 million to charities of the Oscar host’s choice.

The Wall Street Journal reported that the stunt “wasn’t entirely unplanned,” saying that a Samsung smartphone was used in the show as part of a sponsorship and $20 million advertising deal with Oscar broadcasters ABC.

During rehearsals Samsung executives trained DeGeneres in how to use the Samsung Galaxy, it reported.

Other media noted that, while the host used the Samsung device for the viral selfie, she used her own iPhone to tweet other posts from backstage.

In a statement which arguably fell short of a denial that the stunt was pre-planned, Samsung said the selfie was something “nobody expected.”

“While we were a sponsor of the Oscars and had an integration with ABC, we were delighted to see Ellen organically incorporate the device into the selfie moment that had everyone talking,” it wrote.

“A great surprise for everyone, she captured something that nobody expected,” it wrote.
It added that “in honor of this epic moment,” which has generated over 3 million retweets so far, it would donate $1.5 million to two charities chosen by DeGeneres: St Jude’s and the Humane Society.

DeGeneres corralled a crowd of stars including Brad Pitt, Bradley Cooper, Meryl Streep, Kevin Spacey, Lupita Nyong’o and Jennifer Lawrence for the selfie.

DeGeneres, who said Twitter officials contacted her to say she broke the record, had her eyes on the prize even before posting the photo, encouraging viewers of the widely-watched show to retweet it and break the record.

Viewers obliged. Within five minutes, it had nearly 100,000 retweets. Less than 90 minutes after that, her tweet had garnered more than 1.9 million retweets and nearly 900,000 “favorites.”

By Wednesday the photo had been retweeted over 3.25 million times.
