T-Mobile CEO John Legere is nobody’s fool and, if nothing else, he is always entertaining. He was on his game during a recent GeekWire interview where he held forth on the topics of the day, including the iPhone 6 Plus Bendghazi / Bendgate farce.
Pretty sure Legere would have been seriously fun/annoying in sixth grade, but as head of the US’ fourth largest wireless carrier, he is perfect, pitch perfect! And, of course, he speaks his mind on the whole absurd Bendgate and/or Bendghazi meme. Spoiler alert — the iPhone 6 Plus doesn’t bend and demand is through the roof!
Legere: “That is such horse****. You know, listen, what the **** did you need to see? The video of the guy that’s doing this. If you could have seen his face he probably would have been purple. The veins were coming out of his fingers and the thing moves a little bit. Are you ****ing kidding me? I mean, when’s the last time you took any other, this is an amazing super computer in your hand. What the **** are you putting it in your pants and sitting on it for. You know, seriously.
Legere: You know what, those nine people that sat on their phones, first of all they need jeans that fit them a little better, cause if your jeans are cutting your phone. What idiot? Give me a break. Take your laptop, you know, do handstands on it, throw it against the wall. That’s a bull****. This thing doesn’t f***ing bend.
Straight talking John Legere on the iPhone 6 Plus. When he’s done saving T-Mobile perhaps we can get him to run for the Senate or what have you…
What’s your take?
