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.

ATT is a cheater, their agents lie to you. The next plan from ATT is still a 2 year contract and they say its not a contract. Its a fraud and ripoff. But its ok as long as its in national interest to have ATT rather that buying phones from foreigners!

@tmosucks You sound like cry baby brat who wants everything to be free, even when it's your screw up! Wow, they didn't send you a text saying your bill is due. News flash idiot, it's due on the same f****ing date every month! They shouldn't have done anything for you except for telling you to be a responsible human. Geezus, you're pathetic.
