Before the Broadway Curtain rises in the Broadway shows, viewers are asked to turn off their phones. Apparently, Kanye West did not receive the news on Monday night when he attended with his wife Kim Kardashian on the opening night of the Cher Show.
Jarrod Spector, who plays Sonny Bono in the musical, tweeted during the performance. "Hey @kanyewest so cool you're here at @TheCherShow! If you look up from your mobile phone, you'll see that we're pointing up here. It's opening night A pretty big deal for us. Many Thanks. "
And with that, Twitter had left with hundreds of comments, thousands of retweets, and more than 17,000 likes. Many of those who commented on it refer to the Tony Award-winning actress Patti LuPone, who in 2015 accepted a phone from a spectator who texted during a show for "Shows for Days".
Others came to Kanye's defense, suggesting that Spector was focusing on his performance should focus and not on what the audience is doing.
For his part, Kanye acknowledged that he had been wrong and apologized.
He tweeted: Please forgive my missing etiquette. We have so much appreciation for the energy you invest in this masterpiece. "
