T-Mobile CEO Legere Rips Profanity-Laced Defense Of Apple iPhone 6 Plus, Calls 'Bendgate' Horse Poop

It seems as though whenever John Legere opens his mouth, it's a newsworthy occasion. The outspoken Chief Executive Officer of T-Mobile isn't known for pulling punches, though he's certainly prone to taking jabs at the competition, as he's done time and again. However, his latest tirade isn't against Sprint or any other wireless carrier, but the notion that Apple's iPhone 6 Plus suffers a design flaw that makes it prone to bending.

The whole bendgate thing? According to Legere, it's "horses***. I mean, come on, what the f*** did you need to see," Legere said while speaking at the GeekWire Summit when the topic turned to the iPhone 6 Plus.

If there's a specific target to his latest tirade, it's Lou from Unbox Therapy. Lou, as you and 52 million other viewers may recall, posted a video of himself testing the pliability of the iPhone 6 Plus. In the video, you see Lou forcibly bending the iPhone 6 Plus with his thumbs to the point where it no longer bends back.

"The video of the guy that's doing this -- and if you could have seen his face, he probably would have been purple, the veins were coming out of his fingers," Legere said. "And the thing moves a little bit? Are you s***ting me? I mean, when was the last time you took any other....this is an amazing supercomputer in your hand. What the f*** are you putting in your pants and sitting on it for?"

According to Apple, only nine people have complained about their iPhone 6 Plus devices warping. As to those nine folks, Legere says "they need jeans that fit them a little better."
