Madonna Banned from the Alamo Drafthouse

Following up on that story about Madonna texting during a screening at the Alamo Drafthouse NY Film Festival (sorry, I put that she was at the Drafthouse) she’s now been banned. An account of what happened came from film critic Charles Taylor on Facebook. Here’s the full post.

Tonight at the New York Film Festival premiere of ’12 Years A Slave’ (a masterpiece, by the way), I sat behind the unholy trifecta of Jason Ritter, J. Alexander from ‘America’s Next Top Model,’ and Michael K. Williams from ‘The Wire.’ Plus, a mysterious blonde in black lace gloves who wouldn’t stop texting on her Blackberry throughout the first half of the movie. Eventually, a woman next to me tapped her on the shoulder and told her to put her phone away, and the blonde hissed back, ‘It’s for business… ENSLAVER!’ I turned to the shoulder tapper and loudly said, ‘THANKS!’ and gave her a thumbs up. The rest of the movie, I kept thinking about how I wanted to tell the blonde what a disgrace she was. During the standing ovation, the blonde ducked out and Jason Ritter turned around to make commiserating eye contact, as J. Alexander asked, ‘Who WAS that?!’ Jason then looked down at the floor. His eyes got wide, and he picked up an envelope and showed it to us and J. And it said: ‘2 screening tix MADONNA.’ And sure enough, we looked to the side of the theater and standing against the wall in black lace gloves was Madonna. The worst person in America.

Tim League, founder of the Alamo Drafthouse and who has instituted a strict no texting policy, heard about the incident and went on Twitter to publicly ban her from stepping foot inside the Drafthouse until she issues an apology.

No word on whether or not Madonna will issue one. In any case, Tim should stop being such an enslaver.

    No wonder her behavior is as it is. Shes one of the biggest musical thieves ever.
