FAKE NEWS:TRUMP ‘SUPPORTER’ SHOUTS ‘WE WON! YOU LOST! GET OVER IT! F**K U!’ AT ‘HAMILTON’ IN CHICAGO LEAVING CAST CRYING; REAL NEWS: DRUNK GOT UPSET WITH LINE ABOUT IMMIGRANTS
FROM Broadway World :
As reported by BroadwayWorld, Friday night Vice President-Elect Mike Pence attended a performance of Hamilton on Broadway, where he was met with disdain from audience members. Following the curtain call, the cast of the production addressed Pence directly via a speech made by cast member Brandon Victor Dixon. Despite the fact that the speech was a call for unity and representation, Donald Trump has condemned the cast on Twitter, accusing them of “harassing” Pence, and demanding an apology.
Now, BroadwayWorld has learned that a Trump supporter interrupted the Saturday evening performance of Hamilton in Chicago. An audience member seated in the balcony allegedly shouted “We won! You Lost! Get over it! F*ck you!” during the number “Dear Theodosia.”
Update: an audience member has exclusively confirmed to BroadwayWorld that the initial disturbance began after the audience member was enraged by the line “immigrants, we get the job done.” The majority of the audience cheered that specific line.
Audience members exited the auditorium to retrieve venue staff to remove the disruptive audience member. Our source confirmed that the altercation lasted for at least two numbers and that there was a struggle with security but “he didn’t throw punches.”
The audience member also informed us that venue staff later said the audience member had been intoxicated.
