The New York Post reports "that a blonde in black lace gloves wouldn’t stop texting,” a spy had told Page Six at the time.

When an audience member asked her to stop, the blonde, who turned out to be none other than Madonna, snapped back, “It’s for business . . . enslaver!”

Alamo, headquartered in Austin, Texas, prides itself on kicking moviegoers out if they refuse to stop texting, and seized on the news.

The company’s co-founder and CEO, Tim League, tweeted, “Until she apologizes to movie fans, Madonna is banned from watching movies at all Alamo Drafthouse locations.”

Maybe she can apologize in a song, then she can sing it at her concerts and have the crowd texting while she performs it? Maybe that would be a fitting apology?

Do you text at the movies?  Are you annoyed by people who do?
