T-Mobile CEO John Legere loves a good expletive-laden tirade to discuss his competitors, but acknowledges that he went too far on Wednesday night when he described rival carriers as “raping” their customers.

“The drawback to having no filter when I speak … sometimes I need a filter,” Legere said in a tweet on Thursday. “Genuinely apologize to those offended last night.”

Legere had plenty of choice words for AT&T, Verizon and Sprint on Wednesday, including saying, “Those fuckers hate you.”

His comments came during the company’s latest “Un-carrier” event where the company announced a week-long iPhone Test Drive, a new music service and the ability for customers to stream music without incurring data charges.


Ah, yet another apology forced by a baby, politically correct country who can't learn to take things in their proper context. When will we rise up and stop this language, thought policing, and politically correct nonsense?
