Hamilton Actor Defends Harassment of VP Elect Mike Pence – Claims His Lecture was “Dialogue”

Vice President-elect Mike Pence attended a performance of Hamilton tonight in New York City.
Pence was harassed by the audience… AND the cast..

The audience booed when he entered the theater.
(many also cheered)

Then at the close of the performance actor Brandon Dixon insulted the vice president-elect.

Actor Brandon Dixon lectured the new Vice President-elect on “tolerance.”

“Vice President elect Pence we welcome you and we truly thank you for joining us here at Hamilton the American musical. We really do. We sir, we are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us.”


On Saturday morning President-elect Donald Trump defended Mike Pence and told the Hamilton cast to apologize.

“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!”

“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!”

Now this…
The lead actor Brandon Dixon responded to Trump this morning saying his lecture from the stage was “dialogue.”

The Hill reported:

An actor from the Broadway hit “Hamilton” is responding to President-elect Donald Trump’s claim that the show’s cast “harassed” Vice President-elect Mike Pence.

Trump tweeted Saturday morning that the Pence “was harassed last night at the theater by the cast of Hamilton, cameras blazing.”

“Conversation is not harassment sir,” accord Brandon Victor Dixon replied in a tweet. “And I appreciate @mike_pence for stopping to listen.”

What an idiot.
Lecturing a captive audience is NOT dialogue.
