Well, this was one home shopping network demo of a laptop that really went awry. And thanks for the tip on this, kind reader.
According to Consumerist.com, a viewer was recently shocked to see the “N” word on the screen of a cheapie laptop that QVC was demonstrating. At the time, the laptop screen was showcasing a website.
The viewer emailed QVC with a screen shot of the offending image, but she didn’t get any response.
When Consumerist.com contacted QVC, SVP of Brand and Communications Doug Rose issued an apology, said the incident was under investigation and added that the network was evaluating its live-streaming procedures.
