Nokia fan page uses crying IDF soldiers to promote phone

In the picture, every sobbing soldier represents a Nokia competitor that is worried about the upcoming rollout of a new Nokia phone that year. The bottom of the picture has the caption: “Nokia9 coming soon…”

A soldier who appears in the picture spoke with Israel Hayom and expressed outrage over the improper use. “I hope they take it down now that this issue has been raised,” he said. “This is a funeral for one of my friends, it is not funny.”

The page manager told Israel Hayom that he was not aware of the sensitivity, adding that he decided to use the picture after stumbling upon it in a Google search.

As of Thursday, the picture was still on the page.

We don’t show the image. Lacks of the most elementary decency.
