Chicago Hamilton Cast
A Donald Trump supporter decided to strike back at Hamilton: An American Musical on Saturday night by going on a profane tirade in the middle of a performance.
Mike Pence received major intrigue this weekend after Trump’s vice president was booed by fellow audience members when he went to see the show on Broadway. The cast addressed Pence directly at the show’s conclusion, which drew the ire of Trump and his supporters.
According to BroadwayWorld, a Chicago theatergoer was led out by security when he went on a pro-Trump rant during the play’s musical number, “Dear Theodosia.”
“We won! You Lost! Get over it! F*ck you!” the man allegedly said.
The incident was corroborated by fellow audience members online, who said the man started getting irate after the “Yorktown” song lyric: “immigrants, we get the job done.” BroadwayWorld also said they heard from one theatergoer who said the venue staff determined that the shouting man was intoxicated at the time.
