T-Mobile CEO John Legere Gets Kicked Out of AT&T's CES Party
The battle between T-Mobile and AT&T keeps intensifying, as the 'uncarrier' CEO John Legere was thrown out of an AT&T CES Party where Macklemore was performing. T-Mobile CEO Legere was not invited by AT&T to the event, but he did secure passes from Macklemore's agent, so he was there legitimately.
Legere, who showed up in a pink T-Mobile shirt, apparently just wanted to hear Macklemore, he told reporters. But AT&T did not see it that way, and within 20 minutes of being alerted of his presence, the CEO was approached by security guards who asked him to leave.
“All of a sudden these gigantic goons said ‘Can I talk to you over here,’ ” Legere said, in an interview outside the Venetian hotel later on Monday, adding that he was told that if he didn’t leave immediately he would be charged with trespassing. Legere said he was also escorted from the premises.
An AT&T representative would not comment on the decision to remove Legere, however Legere said he was 'angry' and this was 'not a good move' by AT&T. You can check out some of his tweets here.
