Last week Americans from across the country exploded in outrage when they heard that PayPal was boycotting North Carolina but still doing business in five countries where homosexuality is punishable by death.
Just kidding! Something even worse happened – AMC’s new CEO Adam Aron told Variety that they were considering a change in policy that would allow patrons to text during movies. This did not sit well with the American public (and by public, I mean old people).
Sure, the kids would love to watch a movie and Snapchat or Chatsnatch or whatever it is they do these days. But since most kids are lazy, unemployed mooches they don’t have their own money. Mom and Dad pick up those movie tabs and if AMC pisses off Mom and Dad they can probably say goodbye to a good chunk of their income stream.
However, AMC has heard our cries and responded to the wailing and gnashing of teeth.
NO TEXTING AT AMC. Won’t happen. You spoke. We listened. Quickly, that idea has been sent to the cutting room floor. pic.twitter.com/JR0fo5megR

Now those annoying millenials will just have to turn their screen lights all the way down to text on the down-low just like the rest of us.
Congratulations, America! We won this round, but stay alert because bad ideas don’t really ever die…they just get shows on E! channel.
