T-Mobile is hot water again for one of its "Uncarrier" campaign commercials.
The latest comes in the form of a letter written by San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon and New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman calling for the carrier to pull one commercial parodying a smartphone theft because they felt it belittled the issue.
