AMC Theatres Considers Allowing Texting During Movies Just To Appease Millennials…

no title

This may be literally the dumbest thing we've ever heard…

AMC Theatres is the largest movie theater chain in the entire country, but just because you're the biggest doesn't mean you're the best.

Case in point: it was revealed on Wednesday that the company's CEO of only four months, Adam Aron, is toying with the idea of allowing text messaging in theaters!!!

Yeah… no thank you, Adam.

While the businessman is responsible for upgrading the food and seats at AMC's locations throughout the country, we can't see how having select theaters where texting is allowed would be beneficial to anyone.

The former Philadelphia 76ers co-owner sat down with Variety to discuss his idiotic plan, saying:

Can you guess what it is??

No, it's not "fleek," and it's absolutely not "awesomesauce" or "swag."

In fact, if you gave a word at all, you're way off because…

The Word Of The Year isn't a word at all — it's THIS (below)!

Jonathan Groff Throws Some Serious Shade At Madonna!

Jonathan Groff is not a Madonna fan.

When Madonna released her song Express Yourself all those years ago, we're not sure this is what she had in mind!

Jonathan Groff recently opened up to FourTwoNine about his missed connection with the superstar singer back April, when she was not invited backstage after seeing a production of Hamilton at the Public Theater in New York City.

For those of you wondering why on Earth author-slash-composer Lin-Manuel Miranda denied the pop princess' request to meet the cast of the hip-hop musical, it might be because she wasn't watching the show as much as she was texting through it.

But the Broadway babe wasn't really broken up about not being able to talk to the music icon. In fact, Jonathan hopes the snub taught her a lesson about theater etiquette, saying:

Broadway Sensation Patti LuPone Takes Away An Audience Member's Phone Mid-Show Because They Were Texting During Shows For Days!

no title

UPDATE 6:07 PM EST: Patti issued a statement about why she snatched the texter's phone, saying:

"We work hard on stage to create a world that is being totally destroyed by a few, rude, self-absorbed and inconsiderate audience members who are controlled by their phones. They cannot put them down. When a phone goes off or when a LED screen can be seen in the dark it ruins the experience for everyone else – the majority of the audience at that performance and the actors on stage. I am so defeated by this issue that I seriously question whether I want to work on stage anymore. Now I'm putting battle gear on over my costume to marshal the audience as well as perform."

—————————–

In case you forgot that you shouldn't be texting during a broadway show, Patti LuPone is here to remind you!

On Wednesday, the Tony winner put a stop to a persistant texter during the evening performance of her play Shows for Days at the Lincoln Center!

This Is GENIUS! One School Made A Texting Lane For Distracted Walkers!

Filed under: SchoolViral: News

Utah Valley University added texting lanes to its recreation center!

No one likes being stuck walking behind the person who's texting.

They go too slow, they aren't paying attention, and they just hold you up from wherever you're trying to go. But now, one Utah school is trying to fix the problem!

[ Related: A Man Got A Ton Of Porn After Scanning A Ketchup QR Code! ]

Utah Valley University has created a walking lane just for those suffering from phone separation anxiety! The school painted bright green lines on the stairway leading up to its gym, sectioning them off into three zones: one for walkers, one for runners, and one for texters!

SO smart!

As of right now, the lanes are on in the university's recreation center, but 22-year-old student Tasia Briggs hopes they spreads all over campus, saying:

"There's nothing worse than walking behind someone who's texting, and you can't get around them and go anywhere."

School spokeswoman Melinda Colton explained the lines were put in place to brighten up the space. It's probably safe to say their decision to use neon green definitely accomplished that goal.

What do U think? Are the lanes a good idea? SOUND OFF in the comments!

Granted, the traffic was moving pretty slow, but still!

Maybe she just keeps forgetting about all of those other accidents she's been in since getting her license.
