President-Elect Donald Trump demanded an apology from the entire cast of Hamilton this morning after Vice President-Elect Mike Pence attended the show and the cast delivered a statement asking him to work on behalf of all people in the White House.

On Twitter, Trump said that Pence had been harassed by the show’s cast on Friday night and that this should not happen. He went on to say in a separate tweet that the theater should be a safe space.

Upon arriving to the theater for a performance of Hamilton on Friday evening, Vice President-Elect Mike Pence was booed by audience members in attendance. The cast did not boo Pence or say anything negative about him, and in fact they specifically asked the crowd not to heckle the vice president-elect. Brandon Victor Dixon, who plays Aaron Burr in the show, made a brief statement at the conclusion of the performance thanking Pence for coming and asking him to be an inclusive leader.

“We, sir, 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,” Dixon said. “We truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf all of us.”

Dixon responded to Trump’s tweet by saying that conversation is not harassment.

According to The New York Times, Pence was on his way out of the theater when the statement was made, but he stopped in a hallway to listen.

On the campaign trail, Donald Trump frequently stated that his rallies were the safest places on Earth while calling members of the press “disgusting” and encouraging his supporters to boo them.

What did Pence think was going to happen at Hamilton? Does he have any dea what the show is about? Does he understand what theatre i all about? (It is about making you uncomfortable. It is not supposed to be a safe place for the audience.)


I don’t know what Mike Pence vice president elect was thinking. I would have been thinking are these people going to attack me ? Is this kind of behavior acceptable to President Obama? They should apologize and President Obama should ask them to. For their childish behavior ,this is completely unacceptable to act this way in a civil society.


They booed. If that’s your idea of “completely unacceptable behavior,” then you’d probably enjoy living in North Korea.


How can you possibly say that ? people are getting hurt .
Is it true that these angry people that are protesting in a open assembly without a permit ? and not allow others to have their constitutional freedom. Also a disruption to others ,how can this possibly be legal ? They should apologize for their Behavior in front of others . Absolutely shameful !


You are a moron…….keep the mooselum in power and you’ll see what you get. Hasn’t he destroyed the country enough!


It’s only because President Obama respects the First Amendment that morons like you have the freedom to call him a “mooselum.” If you think you’ll continue to enjoy that same freedom with a thin-skinned man-baby like Trump in charge, think again.


Trump is only out for himself. He hides behind making all americans great again. He has no intention of leaving his businesses behind. There are numerous conflicts of interest there and he doesn’t care. We’ll see anyway. He has many, many overseas in countries like Turkey and India. Countries experiencing their own conflict. Everything he does and will be doing will be unprecedented and because he’s King, I mean, President, he’ll get away with it all. Morals, ethics and conflicts of interest are not laws. As long as they aren’t, he’ll do what he wants. Oh, and BTW, he just filed a suit again Washington, D.C. That’s right. For that hotel he opened during his campaign. This is yet another property that he wants assessed to a much lower value. It’s worth is $98M. He wants it assessed down to $21M. That’s who you voted for. You think he’s not going to do the same to you, the poor schmuck? He’s already aligned himself, or should I say safeguarded himself, around racists, white nationalists and radical extremists. You might not wish Obama to be back in charge but you are going to rue the day you voted for Trump!
