Rich Dewberry, who, despite his name is allegedly straight, was recently falsely outed on Facebook by a Best Buy employee who was supposed to repair his phone but instead posted a message on Rich's already-signed-in Facebook account. The Geek Squad: maybe not as professional as we'd like to think. The offending employee has since been fired.

Rich Dewberry said he brought in his mobile device to get fixed and was given a new phone. Shortly afterward, his Facebook status read, "I am gay, I'm coming out."


"The phone just started ringing constantly after that from [an] ex-spouse to friends," he told ABC's Denver affiliate, KMGH.

"Just having to explain it to certain people that I haven't been in contact for a while," he said. "I feel I shouldn't have to do that."

Listen Rich: people thinking you're gay isn't the worst thing that can happen to a person. As a matter of fact, on several occasions it's allowed me to see some boobs that I never would have been able to see otherwise. *girl that's a friend changing* "You ARE gay, right?" OMG, sister -- THE GAYEST.

Thanks to Suzanne, who agrees updating somebody else's Facebook status on an auto-logged in device is like the LOL-iest! Jk jk, f***ing lame.
