Samsung spokesman LeBron James tweets that his phone self-erased

Samsung sure likes trotting out celebrities to help sell their products, but sometimes doing so leads to embarassment.

Samsung sure likes trotting out celebrities to help sell their products, but sometimes doing so leads to embarassment. In the most recent example, long-time Samsung ambassador and NBA superstar LeBron James recently tweeted that his phone, presumably a Samsung Galaxy of some sort, had erased everything.

James, of course, deleted the tweet in question shortly thereafter because, let's face it, it's not a good look for James who has appeared in a number of Samsung commercials.

In a follow-up tweet, James is clearly not happy.
