Friday night Vice President-Elect Mike Pence tried to take a break from politics and enjoy the mega hit and sold out forever Broadway show Hamilton with his daughter and nephew. Unfortunately for him this election is a different beast and he won’t be able to escape the anger that still is being felt across the nation.
Pence’s arrival to show was greeted to a mix reaction of some cheers and some very loud and honestly well-deserved boos.
Little did he know that’s not all that was gonna be coming his way that night. The cast of the show also had a direct message to Vice President-Elect Mike Pence.The actor Brandon Victor Dixon delivered a powerful and well-prepared message once the show wrapped. Peep it below:
“We, sir — we are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us.”
“We truly hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us, This is one American story told by a diverse group of men and women of different colors, creeds and orientations.”
Dixon was greeted with loud cheers after he addressed Pence who was on his way out, but graciously stuck around in the hall to listen to the message.
Our Tweeter-In-Chief, Donald Trump, his former Press Secretary Kellyanne Conway and Speaker of The House Newt Gingrich were not to pleased to hear about the reception the Vice President received and of course took to their twitter account to address the play. They all foolishly tweeted:
Why is he still tweeting to begin with?
Cast member Brandon Victor Dixon even responded to Donald Trump’s ridiculous tweets:
Well said sir, the shows creator Lin-Manuel Miranda expressed how proud he was of Dixon and the cast for “leading with love” and tweeted:
Of course Trump-Pence supporters got their twitter fingers going getting the #BoycottHamilton hashtag going. Of course they don’t realize how ridiculous they sound because the show is SOLD OUT FOR TWO YEARS!
In response to the absolutely dumb #BoycottHamilton movement the good folks on Twitter started the #NameAPenceMusical hashtag putting spins on plays using the ridiculousness that took place in and during the Trump-Pence Presidential campaign.
