After generating a backlash among hypebeasts, Samsung has announced that it is reevaluating its partnership with Supreme Italia, a rip-off of the real Supreme brand.

A few days after the Galaxy Note 7 was launched, Samsung was forced to issue a massive recall in several markets due to reported battery safety issues that have caused some units to catch fire, according to Consumerist.

A government office in China has banned its employees from using Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 following the device’s ban in airplanes.

Phone mishaps happen, but we’ll admit this one is pretty bad.
