The set designer for "Hand to God" should probably take a bow.

Twitter is giving a big ol' raspberry to a report that an audience member at the Broadway play climbed on stage and attempted to charge his cell phone using a fake outlet on the set.

Cast and audience members tweeted about the July 2 incident, and let's just say the word "idiot" was used.

Dear general audience, an electrical socket that's a part of the set of the play is NOT for you to charge your iPhone.....just an FYI.....

A representative for the production confirmed the incident to Playbill.com. The perception is often that theater-goers tend to be of a, shall we say, different caliber from movie-goers, but NY1 anchor Pat Kiernan tweeted that "Being able to afford a ticket doesn't mean you have class."

The play is about a young man whose Christian hand puppet takes on an irreverent personality. The show had a bit of fun with what happened, tweeting that "The audience really phoned it in" at Friday night's performance, with an Instagram picture of a "low battery" icon.

Bravo!
