We’ve got a rudeness epidemic on our hands: Just days after Patti LuPone had to personally remove a cell phone from a theatergoer’s hands, Jonathan Groff says that Madonna, too, is apparently an inconsiderate audience member.

After a performance of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton, the pop star was banned from coming backstage because she was texting during the show. In an interview with Dot429, Groff says he is not remotely disappointed that Madonna couldn’t come backstage, “because that bitch was on her phone.”

“You couldn’t miss it from the stage,” Groff said. “It was a black void of the audience in front of us and her face there perfectly lit by the light of her iPhone through three-quarters of the show.”

This isn’t the first time Madonna has been blasted for texting while in the audience. In 2013, Madonna was accused of texting during a screening of 12 Years a Slave. She was later banned from Alamo Drafthouse theaters for her alleged behavior.
