Trump demands 'Hamilton' cast apologize for 'harassing' Pence

- Donald Trump had a few words to say to the cast of ‘Hamilton’ after they addressed Vice President- elect Pence during the curtain call of Friday night’s performance.

Mike Pence was in the audience during Friday’s performance, and actor Brandon Victor Dixon, who played Aaron Burr, had a little message for him before Pence was on his way out.

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

Mike Pence apparently left the audience before Dixon finished speaking, but he reportedly stayed outside the auditorium to hear the full speech.

Although there was no statement from the V.P. elect, President-elect Donald Trump did have a few words to say about the ‘Hamilton’ cast on Twitter Saturday morning.

He tweeted out, “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!”

And he continued on saying, “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!”

‘Hamilton’ has not apologized, but Dixon did reply to Trump and said, "@realDonaldTrump conversation is not harassment sir. And I appreciate @mike_pence for stopping to listen."
