Kanye West Responds After ‘Cher Show’ Actor Calls Him Out For Looking At His Phone Throughout Show

Jarrod Spector, who portrays Sonny Bono in the just-opened “The Cher Show” on Broadway, took to Twitter to call out one such celebrity for being focused on his phone throughout the show: Kanye West.

“Hey @kanyewest so cool that you’re here at @TheCherShow,” tweeted Spector. “If you look up from your cell phone you’ll see we’re doing a show up here. It’s opening night. Kind of a big deal for us. Thanks so much.”

Spector’s tweet received a LOT of positive response. Check out this sampling:

Shortly after Spector issued his tweet, West responded with a sort-of apology, asking Spector to “please pardon my lack of etiquette,” adding: “We have so much appreciation for the energy you guys put into making this master piece [sic].”
