#BoycottHamilton Trends After ‘Hamilton’ Cast Members Harass Mike Pence

The hashtag #BoycottHamilton became a top trend on social media Saturday after cast members from the popular Broadway show Hamilton lectured Vice President-elect Mike Pence from the stage on Friday night.

Pence was apparently booed as he took his seat. As the performance concluded and Pence exited the theater, actor Brandon Victor Dixon lectured him about how a “diverse America” is “alarmed and anxious” about the incoming Trump administration.

“We, sir — 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,” Dixon said as Pence exited the building.

The fallout and backlash have been swift..

I wanted to see that play next year..but after the way they behaved I wont. It was totally unprofessional and ignorant for the Hamilton cast to do what they did..and no one would want that to happen to them..so don't see it and spread the message, do t go!!..they certainly have no moral high ground to lecture anyone.

I would not have wanted to be the person in the crowd who purchased tickets and voted Trump, only to hear what had happened. I would boycott for sure! Shame on the arts ! It was not the forum to do that.
