Rich Dewberry returned his faulty cellphone to Best Buy, but forgot to log out of his mobile Facebook account. Minutes after he left the store, a Facebook status message went out from his old phone saying he is gay. Dewberry says a Best Buy employee must have sent it.
Instantly friends and relatives began calling him up.
Best Buy told Dewberry the employee was fired. It said staff members all sign a code of ethics on proper handling of customer information.
