Madonna Gets Busted for Texting and Other Celebs With Bad Movie Manners
The Alamo Drafthouse movie theater chain is notorious for its policy on manners during the movies and makes no exceptions for celebrities. Recently, Queen of Pop (and our collective eye rolls) Madonna was caught texting during a screening of 12 Years a Slav e at the Walter Reade Cinema in Lincoln Center. The film by Steve McQueen tells the story of a free black man who was captured and sold into slavery in the antebellum South of the United States.
It was reported when one audience member tapped her on the shoulder and asked her to please stop Madge responded, “It's for business … enslaver!" When the CEO and Co-Founder of the Alamo Drafthouse caught wind of the story, he tweeted, “Until she apologizes to movie fans, Madonna is banned from watching movies.”
Madonna isn’t the only big celebrity to cause a ruckus at the movies. Here’s a list of fellow Hollywood elite who could use a little Alamo Drafthouse manner lessons when it comes to their behavior at the movies, and on the red carpet on their way into the movies.
