A Target customer’s attempt to publicly shame a store manager over her refusal to sell him a mispriced electronic toothbrush has backfired after sympathizers raised over $30,000 for her. The incident began Friday when David Leavitt, whose Twitter biography said he is an award-winning journalist with bylines for multiple media outlets, tried purchasing an Oral B Pro 5000 electric toothbrush that was marked for sale for $.01 at the Swanesa, Mass., store, The Herald News reported. Leavitt tweeted that a store manager named Tori refused to sell him the item for the displayed price, prompting him to call the police.
