6 funny reactions to Samsung's unfortunate Galaxy Note 7 battery issue

6 funny reactions to Samsung's unfortunate Galaxy Note 7 battery issue
It's a bad day for Samsung. The company is recalling its Galaxy Note 7 because the handset represents a potential health hazard. 

Following various reports of Note 7 batteries that exploded while charging, Samsung wants to prioritize customer safety, thus it's recalling all Galaxy Note 7 units released until now (already sold, or just shipped to carriers and retailers) - about 2.5 million of them. Until the battery issue is resolved, Note 7 sales are halted around the world (except for China, where the device comes with batteries from different suppliers), while customers who already purchased the handset can ask for a new device, or a refund

The issue is certainly going to have a negative impact on Samsung's future earnings and overall image, but the company is strong enough to get over this. Samsung's quick response, and the promise to fix things as soon as possible, are firm steps in the right direction.   

Despite the rather ominous day that Samsung and many Galaxy Note 7 owners are having, we want to keep things lighthearted. We've gathered various funny reactions to the Note 7 battery problem, and we're inviting you to check them out below. Mind you, this is in no way an anti-Samsung article. In case you don't remember, we also posted similar articles (with funny Twitter reactions) when the iPhone SE was released, or when the iPhone 6 bendgate issue arose. We just think it's important to keep our sense of humor, even in not-so-great situations, and we hope you'll agree.     

Let's start with this scene from Batman The Movie (1966):

Ignorant and retarded...yeah, I guess you could say that. But not funny? Dude, those are HILARIOUS!! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA​HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!! Seriously, just don't be so serious about it. It happened. It could have happened to any OEM, and it has happened to other OEM's before. What matters from that point is how it's handled. Samsung is quickly correcting the issue. Might as well turn a negative into something light-hearted.

"But not funny? Dude, those are HILARIOUS!" It's got nothing to do with me being "so serious". You do realize that your comment is based on your opinion, right? So, I simply expressed my own opinion about those Twitter reactions in comment #1, and obviously you didn't hesitate to express yours in #3.

Did I say anything about your reaction being wrong? No, I didn't. I merely expressed another way of looking at this. If you just wanted to be left alone with your bumburn, all you had to do is say so.

Did I say that you said (or even implied) that my reaction is wrong? No. And which "bumburn"? Do you know out of which thought and sentiment I did express my opinion? No. You're just assuming i expressed it from a "bumburn". I do not permit you to judge my thoughts which you do not even know!

Did I say that you did? No. It's clear that you expressed it from bumburn. This entire article was meant to be funny and turn a serious situation into a lighthearted one. You're the only one taking it seriously. No "assuming" involved. It's called "deductive reasoning". When you post your "thoughts" here for all to see, you are giving permission for someone to "judge" them. It comes with the territory since it's an open, public forum.

You can judge the thougjts I've expressed and posted. But not what I haven't posted or made known. Your "bumburn" isn't anywhere near clair in my post #1. So I conclude that you assumed. Yes, this article is supposed to be fun, so what? It was "funny" in the author's opinion, so posted the article, fine. But not all jokes are funny to everyone. So allow me to not be amused by it as you are.

I never claimed be able to judge your "unwritten" thoughts. It's not *my* bumburn, it's *your* bumburn, and it's quite *clear. Unclench those butt-cheeks. It was hilarious. Lighten up. Again, I'm not telling you what to do, just offering a different approach is all.

Well, by claiming I've got a bumburn, you're implying that you're able to judge my unwritten thoughts. Because your so-called "bumburn" is nowhere in my post #1. "It's quite clair"? How so? I just said those reactions are ignorant and retarded, thus not funny. That's my own opinion. You got any proof of the bumburn it my comment #1 without assumptions included? Please enlighten me.

I made my "judgement" based on your comment alone not your thoughts. For you to say I'm implying otherwise is you doing the exact same thing you claim I'm doing. Hypocrite, much? Seriously dude, it's all fun and games. Lighten up. Or don't. Your choice. It's *clear, not clair. And it is clear, based on your response. If you can't understand that, I can't help you. I just said I made my "judgement" based on your comment. You're taking this waaayyyy too seriously, to the point where you seem like you're in pain over it (again, judging by your reactions), thus the bumburn. Even Samsung users have commented saying this is funny, and they should be the most offended by this, but they're not. Not saying that your reaction is wrong, just pointing out a fact. It's pretty obvious that there's no getting through to you, so you and your bumburn have a nice weekend, and refer to this comment with any of your responses. You've been enlightened.

Lol at clowns online who sit behind a keyboard and argue back and forth paragraph after paragraph. I wish I had as much free time as you guys!

What's even funnier is the clown that comments about it, who obviously has more than enough free time to do so. But I guess you were feeling left out and decided to join in.

Lol just look.how far you had to scroll down to reply to this haha. Time for dinner! Have fun :)

I can say the same about you replying to my comment. Now, I said that you could join in, already. No need for you to continue to feel left out. Calm down. :D

K...I gotta admit that was funny. I just about left the article until I saw your comment...figured they had a duopoly going on here and I didn't want to be the one to try and separate them lol.

Hey, no duopoly here! Feel free to join in! Oh wait, you just did...never mind.

Say the idiot that joined in, proving once again that he's a hypocrite.

You made your judgement based on my comment? No! My comment has no sign of bumburn. I'm not taking this too seriously, I'm reacting now to your false claims about me being bumburn. So, there's no bumburn in my comment #1. No sign of it. Not even an exclamation mark to suggest I'm angry or pissed. And you've enlightened me? SMH, you've literally spread sugar on poop, and told me it tastes good.

42. meanestgenius

Posts: 21778; Member since: May 28, 2014

Yes, I did spread some sugar on your comments. I see that you've noticed that. Now see comment #34.

On who's comments? You came off telling me those Twitter reactions are funny, as if I wasn't aware of the intended humour of this article. Not being amused by it doesn't mean I'm taking it too serious. You have no evidence to prove that I was taking it "so serious". That's your poopy comment which you're now sugar-quoting to make it taste good. Better eat it, since it's tasty, right! Ain't eating your s--t! SMH

This comment^^just oozes bumburn! Lmao! Take it easy dude, you're gonna bust a vein. Oh, and see comment #34. And let's end this right here. Wouldn't want to make Unordinary all giddy again :D

And what about iPhones? iExplode, iElectracuted. There has been no death of humans on Samsung's history, unlike Apple's. Which are severals.

You must be ignorant and retarded to not think those were funny.

6. Mxyzptlk unregistered

It's funny. Don't blow up about it.

"funny" is 100% subjective. Stop forcing your opinion in people's guts, and get a life.

Well considering you're arguing with a brick wall, I don't think you have much room to talk.
