A man in Texas is reportedly suing a women for texting during their date at a cinema.
According to the Statesmen, 37-year-old Brandon Vezmar wants a $17.31 (£13.38) settlement, which was the price of the ticket to see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
“It was kind of a first date from hell,” he said, after they met online.
The woman, 35, who didn’t want to be named, insisted she didn’t know about the claim and that it was “crazy”.
Brandon claims that after around 15 minutes she started texting on her phone, which was one of his “biggest pet peeves”.
In the court papers filed in the small claims court in Travis County, he apparently claims she did it “at least 10-20 times in 15 minutes”.
After asking her to do it outside, she apparently left the cinema and didn’t come back.
However, the woman insists she only did it two or three times, and that she was messaging a friend who was having a fight with her boyfriend.
Now the film’s director James Gunn has weighed in.
“I’m not a bad woman,” she said. “I just went out on a date.”
