Watch: Cee Lo Green Samsung Phone Seemingly Explodes, Knocks Singer Out Of Chair Injuring Him [Video]
A new video showing what appears to be a Samsung phone exploding while Cee Lo Green is on a call is making viral rounds. As Samsung is currently the subject of a wide number of recalls and possible litigation, it’s important to keep the context of the video in perspective. It’s unclear what the exact circumstances surrounding the phone are. If in fact, it was a Samsung, and if this is a true video of Cee Lo Green’s Samsung phone exploding while he was using it, what the legalities of that implication will be. It’s also unknown if the video is real or fake. Was Cee Lo Green really injured by an exploding Samsung or is this another hoax?
Samsung issued a recall on their Galaxy Note 7 smartphones after multiple reports surfaced of the phone overheating and catching fire were reported. The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 recall was last updated on Dec. 9, 2016, and the recall has been expanded, according to the official Samsung website. You can watch the full video that seemingly and allegedly shows a Samsung phone exploding in Cee Lo Green’s face as he uses it in the video player above.
