According to Vezmar, the 35-year-old woman refused to stop texting through the movie. He says the woman then left the theater and never returned when he suggested that she step outside to text.

The woman tells the newspaper Vezmar asked her later for the cost of the ticket, but she refused because “he took me out on a date.”
