T-Mobile CEO After Getting Kicked Out of AT&T’s CES Party: “I Just Wanted To Hear Macklemore”
T-Mobile CEO John Legere reportedly crashed AT&T’s CES party at the Rain nightclub in Las Vegas last night, only to promptly get the boot.
The CEO, whose appearance was witnessed by CNet’s Roger Cheng, who tweeted a photo, showed up for the hip-hop star Macklemore’s private concert to the geeky crowd. But AT&T representatives didn’t want him there.
A security guard tells Geekwire’s Todd Bishop that Legere was allegedly “harassing” party attendees, and AT&T representatives wanted him out.
“All of a sudden these gigantic goons said ‘Can I talk to you over here,’ ” Legere explained to a reporter, and that he was then escorted from the nightclub.
“I just wanted to hear Macklemore.”
