On Friday, Vice President-elect Mike Pence visited the popular Broadway musical, Hamilton, where he was promptly booed, reports People magazine. But actor Brandon Victor Dixon, who plays Aaron Burr, urged the audience to refrain from negativity, the report says.
Dixon delivered the following statement after the show, writes People:
“I see you walking out but I hope you will hear us,” Dixon, who plays Aaron Burr, said. He told the audience, “There’s nothing to boo here, we’re all sharing a story of love.”
“We welcome you, and we truly thank you for joining us here at Hamilton: An American Musical — we really do,” he continued. “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, sir. But we truly hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values, and work on behalf of all of us.”
Indeed, the president-elect weighed in on the issue via Twitter calling for an apology from the cast:
First, Dixon condemned the booing. Secondly, he asked the vice president-elect to govern a diverse nation. What’s so wrong with that? Sound off in comments.
