Samsung Sues Brand Ambassador for Appearing in Public with an iPhone


How can you sign a deal and not honor the agreement? Well, this question should be left for Ksenia Sobchak who claimed to be Samsung brand ambassador to answer.

Ksenia Sobchak is a Samsung brand ambassador and a Russian socialite. She was caught of recent in a public function using an iPhone. WTH! How can you be be using an iPhone when you’re an ambassador to the rival company? What was she thinking.

Well, this has happened so many times before. Ksenia Sobchak isn’t the first to behave like this. A few years ago, for example, Samsung hired supermodel Kate Upton to promote the Galaxy Note 10 launch at an event in New York City. Sounds innocent enough, but Upton was photographed using her iPhone at said event, thus defeating the purpose entirely and providing some free advertising for Apple in the process.

Well, not anymore because from the look of things, Sam$ung has seemingly had enough of these types of shenanigans.

A report from the mirrors has revealed that Sam$ung filed a $1.6 million lawsuit against brand ambassador and Russian socialite Ksenia Sobchak after she was caught using an iPhone X on camera, despite her mediocre efforts to hide the phone behind a sheet of paper.

The report makes a point of noting that Sobchak “is required by contract to appear in public with her Samsung smartphone.” However, she has failed to honor the agreement.

As at the time of writing this article, we’re still waiting to hear from the Russian socialite, Sobchak. It will certainly be interesting to see how Sobchak responds to the suit and if Samsung will aggressively go after her.

But what do you think? Is it cool on Sobchak part to be promoting an iPhone in the public after signing an agreement with Samsung? Drop your comments below in the comments section.
