Within days of the release of Apple’s new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, scores of complaints and numerous videos began popping up claiming the iPhone 6 Plus was a bendable piece of aluminum garbage. Apple refuted the Bendgate rumors, but a pair of troublemaking UK teens decided they needed to test the phones in person, posting a YouTube video of themselves destroying several iPhones in their local Apple Store.
Perhaps realizing that destruction of property — no matter how malleable — is a very real crime, the duo deleted their video, but not before it was saved here for your viewing pleasure.
You might ask, how could these juvenile delinquents be so foolish? But it’s not just kids who possess the perfect blend of bold and stupid to try out this stunt. Check out the tweets from this Wall Street analyst:
Just stopped in an AT&T store to try and bend a 6+. You have to be kidding me. That is not bendable. $AAPL

It’s embarrassing I didn’t check for myself earlier but #bendgate is ridiculous. $AAPL — Walter Piecyk (@WaltBTIG) September 26, 2014
Looks like along with violent videogames, hip-hop music and R-rated movies, Wall Street analysts and tech bloggers are corrupting our children.
