SC Best Buy apologizes for porn broadcast

Posted: Updated:

GREENVILLE, SC (CNN) – A Best Buy store in South Carolina is apologizing after porn suddenly appeared on a TV at the company's Greenville location.

A customer said she was there with her son and grandchildren when the offensive image popped up on a 55-inch smart TV.  According to the woman, the store manager said someone hijacked the store's WiFi to upload the image and the same thing had happened the night before.

Best Buy's corporate office released the following statement:

"Two individuals accessed our store's wireless signal to broadcast inappropriate content on a smart television display. In both cases, we worked immediately to disable the inappropriate content. We greatly apologize for this unfortunate incident and we are working to ensure that it does not happen again."

The customer filed a complaint with the Greenville Police Department, who said they will investigate.
