So Apple fired one of his employees for allowing his daughter Brooke Amelia Peterson post up a video review of his iPhone X on YouTube.

The video which went viral quick has since been taken down by Apple, a company that has very strict policies on privacy and ‘keeping it in the family’.

Brooke who makes and records videos just for fun has made it clear she has no grudge with Apple for firing her dad, having understood it’s company policy, and wasn’t personal.

She even said she will still continue using Apple products, even as she went on praising her dad for being a good man with honest intentions.

But the story here is how people have trolled and insulted the lady and her dad for reasons best known to them.

Perhaps they didn't want a 'spoiler' that would mess up the brand new feel and experience of using a new device in the iPhone X, for those who haven't pre-ordered that is.

“It was an innocent mistake and he fully apologizes, we’re not angry, we’re not bitter, my dad had a really great run at Apple and he appreciates that company for everything they did for his career.

My dad is gonna be okay. He is an incredible human being, I don’t think he deserved this but we’re good.”

Never in a million years did I think I would go viral and it sucks that it turned out negative. People are really mean and I knew that going in to upload videos on YouTube,

You know what guys, hate on me all you want but please don’t hate on my father because he is the best person. I have absolutely no tolerance for those who think they know him, and for the people who are calling us names I don’t understand the amount of hate that is in this world and it’s a shame if you want to call me names that’s fine but please leave my dad alone because he is absolutely everything to me,” she said, almost in tears.

Whatever the reason was, these guys clearly got to the girl who became very emotional at some point in the video and almost was tear up at about 3 minutes 41 seconds of the video as she defended her father, and asked the online bullies not to insult her father, but rather vent all their reservations on her.

This again raises the troubling issue of cyberbullying and the mental effects it could have on the victim.

This unfriendly gesture which must have been poured out on the YouTube comment section of the girl's page, calls for stricter regulations by YouTube administrators.

Cyberbullying probably would never ever go away but measures can be taken to prevent it, just like Brooke did by disabling comments in this recent video upload to YouTube.
