When Mike Pence went to see the Broadway musical Hamilton on Friday night, he probably didn’t think he would cause a controversy. But due to his policies on the LGBT community, the Vice President-elect was booed as he made it to his seat. After the show, actor Brandon Victor Dixon read a statement to him, asking that he work on behalf of all Americans. Of course, this also inspired a Twitter trend, #NameAPenceMusical.
Below are some of the best #NameAPenceMusical tweets and memes Twitter users have shared. Many of them noted the lack of diversity among Pence’s own team compared to the diversity of Hamilton‘s cast. Others noted Pence’s record of policies against the LGBT community in Indiana. The current lead actor of Hamilton, Javier Munoz, is openly gay and HIV positive.
