T-Mobile CEO John Legere was at CES 2014 just as thousands and thousands of others were, but he wasn't allowed to go to at least one thing. Yahoo Finance reported on Jan. 7, 2014, that the T-Mobile CEO was uninvited from AT&T's bash for developers at CES 2014 on Monday. He was even ejected from the party after developers found out he had crashed it.
Legere said he attended the party because wanted to see the headlining act, who happened to be hit star Macklemore. Soon, party-goers began tweeting pics of themselves with the T-Mobile CEO, and that is when developers had him taken out.
“All of a sudden these gigantic goons said ‘Can I talk to you over here,’ ” Legere told Re/code in a brief interview following the incident.
Legere was told that he would be charged with trespassing if he didn't head out of the party immediately.
At that point, the T-Mobile CEO was escorted out by security, and this all happened as AT&T Mobility higher-up Ralph de la Vega talked on stage about the company's new deal with Audi.
The war between T-Mobile and AT&T continues.
