Donald Trump demands an apology from the Hamilton cast for confronting VP-elect Mike Pence

President-elect Donald Trump on Saturday criticized the cast of ‘Hamilton’ for confronting vice president-elect Mike Pence when he attended the Broadway show, Hamilton, Friday night. When the former Indiana governor took his seat at the show, the audience booed him.

At the end of the show, Mike Pence got up to leave while actor Brandon Victor Dixon was giving credits, the actor noticed Mike Pence get up and stopped him to deliver a message.
Dixon read a statement reportedly drafted by Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator of “Hamilton,” with input from cast members. The statement emphasized the diversity of the show’s actors and their broad concerns about the Trump administration.

He said:
“Vice President-elect Pence, I see you walking out but I hope you will hear us, just a few more moments. There’s nothing to boo here, ladies and gentlemen,”
“Vice President-elect Pence, we welcome you and we truly thank you for joining us here at ‘Hamilton: An 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, our planet, our children, our parents, or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights, sir. But we truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values, and to work on behalf of all of us. All of us. Again, we truly thank you for sharing in this show, this wonderful American story told by a diverse group of men and women of different colors, creeds and orientations.”
Well said. And the crowd agreed and clapped ..

Donald Trump this morning, took to his twitter page to criticize the cast for confronting Mike.
He tweeted:

Update: Hamilton Musical just released full statement of what Dixon said to Mike Pence:

    This administration will suffer a lot of harrassments and reproach. I know Americans, they will surely run them off.

    The electoral college betrayed the average U.S citizen on this past election. I guess the citizens will carefully choose their Electors next time whose vote determine who becomes President and V.P. Its obvious the nation doesn't want Trump. They just have to tolerate him for the next 4 years. U.S democracy is cray, I swear!

    Why don't you apologize to everyone you insulted throughout your joke of a campaign? Piss off, creep.

    I am really surprised by the hate and hypocrisy of the Hillary camp and supporters, they are displaying the exact attitude and even worse attributes than they criticized trump for!

    Kai! Can you read at all? What was hateful in their comments? That they should please ensure that they take care of all Americans? Regardless of race, gender or creed? Is that hypocrisy? Is that hate? How is that compared to the venom Trump spewed throughout the campaign insulting everyone including his fellow party members in a bid to get votes from rural redneck racist America, who are plenty in the swing states??? Come on man!

    Word!!
    Truthfully spoken.
    Its pathetic how these blind folks still don't realize that Hilary and the Media created this 'Hateful environment'.
    Well, as the popular Chase saying goes "only the GUILTY are afraid"
    Linda Ikeji should stop being bitter about this ish or her empire will come crashing down like a pack of cards.
    Be objective always n stop taking sides (publicly tho) as ur genuine n loyal readers cuts across both divides.
