Apple store refuses to sell to girl speaking native language from Iran Fair or Foul?
A 19-year-old woman in Alpharetta, Ga., claims that her local Apple store refused to sell her anything after she was heard speaking Farsi with her uncle while she was trying to buy an iPhone and iPad.
"When we said 'Farsi, I'm from Iran,' he said, 'I just can't sell this to you. Our countries have bad relations,'" Sahar Sabet told WSB-TV.
I will specifiy that the 19 year old is an American citizen, but used our trade embargo on Iran as a excuse not to sell to her. But wouldn't that be like if someone was speaking spanish and you you ask if their from cuba, or ask if someone whos asain if they were born in North Korea. I feel this to be racial profiling, and we have a trade embargo against the country not a individual who happens to speak the native language of said country.
