"That is such horses**t," Legere said while speaking at the GeekWire Summit in Seattle.

"The video of the guy who is doing this," Legere said while pretending to bend the iPhone he was holding, "...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 s**tting me?" Legere said in front of a laughing audience. The T-Mobile chief went on to praise Apple's latest introduction, saying the iPhone 6 Plus is an "amazing supercomputer in your hand."

"This thing doesn't f***ing bend," he said. 

Not only did Legere defend one of his company's own rivals against what has come to be known as "Bendgate," he also pointed out it doesn't seem to be having any effect on sales.

"The demand for these devices in the last few weeks is unbelievable," he said.
