(AllHipHop News) Fans of Hip-Hop music delivered Mike Pence a searing message last night (November 18), as the VP elect attempted to take in a performance of “Hamilton.”
Mike Pence was catching a showing of the famed play at The Richard Rodgers Theater, and as he entered the venue, the VP-elect was greeted with boos from the attendees of the Hip-Hop play.
At the end of the politically charged performance, lead actor Brandon Victor Dixon, who plays Aaron Burr, offered up a message to Mike Pence.
“We are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents, or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights, sir,” Dixon told Mike Pence. “But we truly hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and work on behalf of all of us.”
The President, Donald Trump himself, directly responded to the message delivered to Pence by the “Hamilton” cast.
Our wonderful future V.P. Mike Pence was harassed last night at the theater by the cast of Hamilton, cameras blazing.This should not happen!” Donald Trump tweeted.
“The Theater must always be a safe and special place. The cast of Hamilton was very rude last night to a very good man, Mike Pence. Apologize!” President Donald Trump demanded.
“Hamilton” creator Lin-Manual Miranda seemed pleased with Dixon’s message to Pence.
“Proud of @BrandonVDixon, for leading with love,” Lin-Manual Miranda tweeted. “And proud to remind you that ALL are welcome at the theater.”
