In what sounds like a modern-day version of that "Seinfeld" episode in which Jerry is busted making out with his girlfriend during "Schindler's List," Madonna apparently wouldn't put her thumbs away during the equally intense and affecting "12 Years a Slave."
A Page Six source paints the scene at Tuesday's New York premiere of the Steve McQueen-directed drama: "A blonde in black lace gloves wouldn't stop texting" as the movie began, prompting a fellow moviegoer to ask her to stop.
Her alleged (and allegedly appalling) response: "It's for business … enslaver!"
Sure, the story could be apocryphal, but we can all agree that texting during a movie -- with or without a wholly inappropriate comeback -- is just downright rude.
Despite the purported distraction, the Big M was moved by the Oscar buzz-y film.
"She was wiping away tears after the movie," a spy tells E! News. "She said she loved the movie."
