Kanye West Gets Called Out For Using His Phone During Broadway Performance
In the theater, proper etiquette is to be respectful of both your fellow audience members and the performers on stage. Don't talk out loud and especially silence those cell phones. Be present in the moment.
Looks like Kanye West didn't get that last memo.
The musician and his socialite wife Kim Kardashian were some of the audience members during the opening performance of the new Broadway musical, The Cher Show, based on the life of the legendary entertainer. One of the actors in the production called out the YANDHI rapper for using his cell phone during their VIP- very important performance.
“Hey @KanyeWest so cool that you’re here at @TheCherShow! If you look up from your cell phone you’ll see we’re doing a show up here,” wrote actor Jarrod Spector, who plays Sonny Bono in the play. "It’s opening night. Kind of a big deal for us. Thanks so much."
West took to his own Twitter to apologize for his lack of consideration for the performers and the people around him and also to praise the show.
"The dynamics of Cher and Sonny’s relationship made Kim and I grab each other’s hand and sing 'I got you babe,'" he responded. "Please pardon my lack of etiquette. We have so much appreciation for the energy you guys put into making this master piece."
Hopefully 'Ye can learn from this gaffe. Although they're in character, actors are always alert.
