What happens when you mix two rival CEOs, a soiree and Macklemore? The lamest party report ever, but here it goes: Recode reports that T-Mobile CEO John Legere was kicked out of AT&T’s party last night after he was caught creeping on enemy turf.
Mr. Legere, who has made it clear he wants to obliterate his rivals, showed up at AT&T’s party at the Palms Hotel wearing a shirt embossed with T-Mobile’s logo. Apparently that wasn’t party appropriate attire because security spotted Mr. Legere and asked him to leave and was escorted off hotel property.
In a post-party recap with Recode, Mr. Legere insisted that he wasn’t there to make a scene or hog all of the appetizers, but just “wanted to hear Macklemore.” He recounted his traumatic experience:
“All of a sudden these gigantic goons said ‘Can I talk to you over here,’ ” Mr. 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.
AT&T wouldn’t comment on Mr. Legere’s removal. At least this serves as a warning to Boost Mobile to amp up security for their party.
