Jason Bateman cuts line to get iPhone, gets booed at

HollywoodNews.com: I guess being a celebrity has it’s perks, but it doesn’t mean that it’s going to always sit well with your fans. Since everyone has been highly anticipating the release of the iPhone 4, flocks of crowds showed up at Apple stores to purchase the coveted new product.

However, when Jason Bateman showed up to stand in line at a Los Angeles store, he was “plucked out and escorted straight inside,” reports US Magazine. Obviously the 2,000 people wrapped around the store were outraged and according to one witness, “everyone literally started booing and hissing.” Apparently, even Bateman was embarassed and “put his head down,” but that didn’t stop him from using his VIP status to save some time.

Do you think it’s fair that he got to cut the line because of his star status?

    It’s one person… oh well your delayed 10 mins. Lets be honest. If I saw a celebrity positioning themselves in line, I’d probably let them cut in front of me. Especially if it was a celebrity that you almost feel you could strike up a conversation with… even though in reality they’d probably forget about you moments later and I’d probably be boo’d and possibly beaten by an angry mob.

    I like the DumbDumb next to his head in the picture. It fits this story. Some people are saying that it’s Apple’s fault for pulling him out of the line. He should have said no. I have a feeling he was texting an assistant or someone while standing there saying “Get me out of this line” – and then he is rescued by the store employee.

    But in this society celebrities win. He wasn’t the only one get special treatment.
