Madonna ‘Banned’ From Theater Chain After Texting Outburst During ’12 Years A Slave’ Screening

/ October 14, 2013

Madonna’s texting spree may have cost her a trip to all Alamo Drafthouse movie theaters. EW reports that the pop legend was apparently tapping away through a New York screener of 12 Years A Slave. When asked by an audience member to quit the texting, she allegedly had an outburst: “It’s for business … enslaver!”

Now, the CEO of the Texas-based theater chain Tim League has enforced a ban on the singer, tweeting that she won’t be allowed back until she “apologizes to movie fans.” When EW asked if he was serious, he responded, “Yeah, I’m serious, but I don’t think it really affects her life that much.”
