34481555 story Georgia Apple Store Refuses To Sell iPad To Iranian-American Teen 1116 Posted by timothy on Sunday June 24, 2012 @04:21PM from the cultural-profiling dept. pdclarry writes "An Iranian-American teenager was told by an Apple store employee that they could not sell her an iPad because it would violate U.S. trade restrictions. She returned to the store with a camera crew from a local TV station and was again turned down. Apparently an Apple employee heard her speaking Farsi. As he was also of Iranian extraction he recognized the language and used this as a basis for refusal."
