Broadway Actor Calls Out Kanye Via Tweet Mid-Show

Broadway Actor Calls Out Kanye Via Tweet Mid-Show

A new musical about Cher opened on Broadway but it was Kanye West who grabbed headlines when a performer complained about the rapper texting during opening night. Her husband was apparently less so, and he ended up apologizing for his fascination with his phone during the Monday show, reports USA Today.

Jarrod Spector, who portrays Sonny Bono in the musical about Cher's life and career, tweeted about West and proper theater etiquette. That, and the fact that Cher herself attended opening night, and even joined the cast onstage for a song. "We have so much appreciation for the energy you guys put into making this master piece [sic]".

But West, "the voice of a generation" who once said his biggest regret was that he would never get to see himself perform live, was reportedly preoccupied for much of the performance.

While some users commented on the irony of the actor tweeting the admonishment on his own phone during the show, others congratulated him for having the nerve to speak his mind. Allegedly, Kim and 'Ye were scheduled to leave during the intermission, but they pushed their flight back to stay for the entire show.
