The cast of popular Broadway musical, addressed the vice president elect of the US on saturday at the end of their performance. As if walking in to the show amid boos from the crowd was not enough, the cast of Hamilton had to express their fears and concerns about the new leadership of the United states. Below it the message read out by Brandon Victor Dixon:
“I see you walking out but we have a message for you 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, sir. But we truly hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and work on behalf of all of us.”
Like I said in one of my earlier posts, I’m looking out for a whole lot of drama and interesting stuff from these new guys.
As expected, Mr Trump jumped on this and requested for an apology from the cast, stating that they were rude and they disrespected the Vice President elect. I’m wondering what happened to freedom of speech and opinion, and I am an african living in Nigeria! Folks in the US having something coming for them, I really wish them the best and will remember them in my prayers. See more on this here.
Funny thing is, Mike Pence himself stated that he did not feel disrespected or insulted, speaking of someone who understands democracy (see it here) . Anyways, some folks have predicted that Pence might be the next president as Mr Trump might get impeached. What do you think?
