AT&T says they apologize for threatening a man with legal action because he emailed their CEO.

Iphone user Giorgio Galante told Engadget that after he sent two emails in two weeks to CEO Randall Stephenson an AT&T Executive Response team representative threatened to send him a ‘cease and desist’ letter.

AT&T spokesperson Alexa Kaufman tells us that her company has “reached out to Mr. Galante to offer a deserved apology.” Kaufman says it is not their usual policy to threaten customers who send them emails. “This is obviously something we need to apologize for,” she said.

Galante told Engadget that he is switching to Sprint.
