T-Mobile And Text Censorship

Text Message Censorship

Such approval is necessary, T-Mobile added, “to protect the carrier and its customers from potentially illegal, fraudulent, or offensive marketing campaigns conducted on its network.”
It’s the first federal case testing whether wireless providers may block text messages they don’t like.

I'm pretty sure this is less about t mobile's not liking the texts and more about who they are from.

After all if a legal  medical marijuana dispensary wants to use your phone service they shouldn't be able to after all where do we think we are America?

I know I am oversimplifying the whole story but the link at the top of this from Wired explains it in much better detail.
