Iggy Azalea threatens legal action for Papa John's employee giving away personal number

As she was preparing to attend the Grammy Awards, performer Iggy Azalea took to Twitter to tell Papa John's, "I don't think data breach is funny."

The singer tweeted to the company Sunday afternoon, saying that she had reason to believe an employee had given away her personal cell phone number, which she used to order a pizza.


The company responded as it does to many of its Twitter complaints with a quick, light-hearted apology.


Azalea was not satisfied with that answer.


She then threatened to sue if the situation was not resolved.

"Privacy of our customers and employees is extremely important to us," a Papa John's spokesperson said to ABC Monday. "Papa John's has taken appropriate disciplinary action with regard to the employee involved. We are reaching out directly to Ms. Azalea and hope to resolve this incident and make it right."

The singer continued to tweet about the incident throughout Sunday, posting screenshots of messages she received.


DiGiorno took advantage of the public allegations to make the case for frozen pizza, which the singer acknowledged.



Azalea was still able to enjoy her night at the Grammys, tweeting about the awards show in the midst of her Papa John's tweets.


Azalea was not the only star to attend the awards show with her privacy in mind. Katy Perry also weighed in on celebrity privacy over the weekend, urging fans not to share photos taken by paparazzi of her and her family in their home.
