The post was removed, pronto.
Here is what the post read:
This badass is being replaced by an iPhone 6 (not the fat one). I got this one in 2010, and after 4 years, my only complaint is that apps are now designed for bigger screens, and the battery is getting tired. Never had a case for it, since it was most beautiful on its own. Great achievement in design. Great product.
Undoubtedly online natives were pleased by the post as the post written by the “Fashion Police” star reached well over 1.3 million viewers before being deleted.
