Just as Samsung event at the Mobile World Congress was about to begin, Samsung Senior VP and CMO got a ‘not too pleasant’ surprise.
A protestor almost got on the stage holding a ‘Green Peace’ banner. The banner points at the fact that Samsung had failed to share a strategy as to what it was going to do with the 4.3 million units of Galaxy Note 7 which were recalled after its batteries started exploding.
People across the globe had suggested Samsung to come up with a plan to recycle the devices in one form or another or at least their unfaulty parts. Samsung had failed to comment or take action on these suggestions and instead just focussed up on getting to the cause of the battery failures.
Samsung’s David Lowes then waved the protestor off by saying “you’ve made your point.”
