Jason Bateman Cuts in Apple Store Line, Heats Up iPhone 4 Frustration

Apple's iPhone 4 launch has been beset by a growing line of failures, which has only been emphasized by the company's patronizing response to the "Antenna Attenuation" controversy. (Seriously, how many casual consumers know what "attenuation" means?) Following the company's pre-order collapse, iPhone-purchasing issues reached a release-day nadir with low inventories, unavailable gadgets, and interminable lines of foul and ornery consumers.

iPhone 4 campers in Los Angeles found a release for their anger, though, when an Apple Store employee decided that celebrities trump the unwashed masses. According to NY Mag, the sycophant noticed actor Jason Bateman toward the end of a 2,000-strong line, and immediately escorted him into the store. The waiting plebeians fittingly greeted Bateman's exit with a hearty round of boos. Such activity might be expected from some Hollywood halfwits, but for someone who admirably resurrected his career by playing the sole sane member of a disjointed family, this episode elicits supreme disappointment. Boo, we say! Boo! [From: NY Mag]
