This story needs to be heard. It pains me that at something so prestigious an even as the Correspondent’s Dinner, people’s tumorous, insidious bigotry still rears its ugly head

michael mcintyre on getting his invitation to meet the Queen.
I’m a nerd, but not in the useful “you’ll all be working for me one day when I invent jet packs” way. I’m a nerd in the “I have very strong opinions about history and literature and will yell them at you if you give me even the slightest opportunity” way. And that one does not pay well.
Parking? In the city? What is this madness?
There’s always that one person.
That rude, inconsiderate jackass who won’t stop talking or texting during a performance. Being a professional theater critic, Kevin Williamson has experienced his fair share of these people. However, he finally snapped on the night of May 14th.
Williamson was attending a cabaret performance of Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812. If you’re unfamiliar with cabaret seating, it’s basically done with the audience in small groups at round tables of six or seven. Williamson happened to be sitting next to a woman who would not stop using her phone, even after the performance had started. Upon Williamson telling the woman to please stop, her response was: “so don’t look.”
Blood pressure rising. Keep calm. Breathe.
After a few more minutes, Williamson told her again to stop texting, asking her sarcastically if “she had special permission to use her phone during the performance.” Her response? “Mind your own business.”
That’s it. I am so done. Williamson then promptly became the hero the NYC Standard Highline Carnival Tent deserves, and snatched the phone from the woman’s hand, and threw it across the room and out the door. Williamson received a slap in the face from the woman and a quick ousting from the theater. Was it worth it? Totally. Let’s all follow Kevin Williamson’s example and not put up with people’s rude crap.
Oh, and according to Williamson, the performance was top-notch.
