Tim Cook criticized after tweeting out blurry image taken during Super Bowl 50

Tim Cook Super Bowl 50 photo

After snapping up a photo from the 20-yard line of Levi’s Stadium at the end of the Super Bowl 50 game, Apple CEO Tim Cook thought it might be a good idea to share it with the world via his Twitter account.

And so he did, only to find out that the image he had taken prompted Twitterverse to go into ridicule mode.

As noted by The Verge, many Twitter users pointed out that the image Cook took on his iPhone is very blurry, and some of them tagged their comments on Twitter with the #ShotOniPhone hashtag that Apple uses to promote its latest ad campaign which—oh, the irony—focuses on iPhone photography features.

Following that image, Cook soon after posted another, less blurry photo.

Here are some choice comments users posted on Twitter.

Had Cook reviewed the photo before sharing it, none of this would’ve happened. It’s especially puzzling that Cook would tweet out such a poor-quality photo at a time when Apple has just rebooted its award-winning ‘Shot on iPhone’ ad campaign.

    What do u expect, some perfection..? They can shove it up their a**s. Nonsense!

      There should be some perfection.

    Looks to me it was digitally zoomed which is always blurry and garbage, but still was a rather bad photo. But regardless of how bad his picture was, mine comes out pretty good.

      Digital zoom doesn’t make it blurry, it reduces the resolution, doesn’t blur it though.

  • Rowan09

    Lol

    Maybe he did it on purpose, hinting that stabilization is coming to all iPhones soon

    He was using his backup phone: The Samsung Galaxy phone. He couldn’t find his iPhone when it got lost in the bar before the game.

  • No, you’re seeing it wrong.
