Mike Pence Booed At Hamilton, Cast Sends Special Message

VP-Elect Mike Pence got a taste of public sentiment tonight, and it was glorious.
Mike Pence Booed At Hamilton, Cast Sends Special Message

Being VP-Elect has its perks, including scoring a couple of tickets to the hottest Broadway show going right now -- Hamilton. But even privilege can't protect from everything.

On his way into the show, he was booed by people in the audience, something that really seems to have upset New York Times' reporter Maggie Haberman, who tweeted this:

Funny how I never saw her care much about how a certain former Secretary of State or our current President has been treated.

After the show, the cast had a special message for the VP-Elect:

Here is the text of the statement:

Vice President Elect Pence, welcome.

Thank you for joining us at Hamilton - An American Musical.

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.

We hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values, and work on behalf of ALL of us.

Thank you.


Rebecca at Wonkette adds:

Miss Manners — the actual one, not the poor imitation above — says it is perfectly acceptable to boo performers on a stage; surely one can, without throwing a tomato, calling him a cracker, or beating his ass like he was a common Muslim cabbie minding his own business in a post 11/9 America, express equal displeasure with a man whose lifelong ambitions to denude gay people of not just equal protection under the law but funding for AIDS that didn’t line the pocket of a conversion therapist instead, and who is about to run both foreign and domestic policy under a president-elect already staffing his cabinet with overt white nationalists, is just as acceptable.

Maggie Haberman does not belong in polite society. And whoever that Dave Itzkoff schmuck is he’s a idiot too.

And I found this tweet to sum things up perfectly:
