Twisted Sister icon Dee Snider was recently seen participating in T‑Mobile’s “Carrier Callout” and sang the classic “We’re Not Gonna Take It” in Times Square on Tuesday, July 12.
The rocker has partnered with T-Mobile for the street protest standing up for the cell plan rate hikes by its competitors, such as AT&T and Verizon. The mobile telecom launched the Carrier Callout campaign and offered a “Price Lock” to assure their existing customers amidst the record high inflation in the U.S., they said in a statement that they’re giving customers “peace of mind their price won’t go up.”
Snider posted a tweet the same day of the protest that read:
“Had fun being a #TMobilePartner and letting those other wireless carriers know aren’t going to take their rate increases!”
While, earlier this week, the singer said:
“I don’t expect you to remember, but last year I was railing against AT&T for how they were treating me after being a customer for 2 decades! The gave me zero response & before switching services I swore I wasn’t finished with them.”
In May, T-Mobile CEO Mike Sievert stated:
“Inflation shouldn’t be an excuse to jack up prices just because you can get away with it. But that’s the carriers’ way. T-Mobile is here to help our customers battle inflation by not adding to the stress of price hikes.”
Protesters around the singer can be seen carrying pink T-Mobile-branded signs with slogans that read, “We’re Not Gonna Take It!” and “Say ‘No’ to Phone-Flation.” Check out some of the videos below.
