Trump supporters calling for boycott of Hamilton

Posted: Updated:

WSIL-- Trump supporters are calling for a boycott, of the award-winning Broadway musical Hamilton.

This comes after a cast member made a speech to Vice President-elect Mike Pence after he attended the show this weekend.

Actor Brandon Dixon who plays Aaron Burr in the show asked Pence to stay after curtain call and hear him out.

He gave a speech reportedly written by the shows creators, saying people are "alarmed and anxious" that the new administration will not protect a diverse America.

Burr hopes the show may inspire them to uphold America's values and work on behalf of the people.

Trump supporters took to Twitter to express their outrage.
