For the past few days, the tabloids have been writing nonstop about Vice President-elect Mike Pence getting booed by fans at a performance of the Broadway play Hamilton last week. And now the drama has continued because supermodel Chrissy Teigen recently blasted Donald Trump for demanding an apology from the Hamilton cast.
As previously reported, the incident happened this past Friday, Nov. 18, when Pence was booed by audience members as he entered the Richard Rodgers Theater in Manhattan. At the end of the show, the actor who played Vice President Aaron Burr, Brandon Victor Dixon, acknowledged Pence and thanked him for coming to the show. Dixon then offered up a powerful appeal to Pence to reconsider his conservative and divisive political stances when it comes to minorities.
“Vice President-elect Pence we welcome you and truly thank you for joining us here,” Dixon said on stage. “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.
“But we truly hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us. All of us,” Dixon added.
Not surprisingly, Trump supporters were up in arms online afterward and even Trump himself blasted the Hamilton cast and demanded online that they apologize.
“The Theater must always be a safe and special place. The cast of Hamilton was very rude last night to a very good man, Mike Pence. Apologize!” Trump tweeted.
Well, Teigen wasn’t happy about Trump calling out the Hamilton cast for Dixon’s peaceful appeal to Pence and she blasted Trump for being a hypocrite.
“Wow @realdonaldtrump is right. I can’t believe they would subject poor, innocent Mike Pence to such abhorrent, evil hate speech,” she wrote sarcastically. “Look who wants a f—ing safe space now. The very thing him and his supporters make fun of as liberal political correctness. God, what a POS.”
Teigen then reasoned that Trump is only making a big deal out of the Hamilton issue to distract Americans from the fact that he agreed on Friday to pay $25 million to settle numerous lawsuits over Trump University.
“Donald knows very well what he is doing. He knows the Hamilton speech was NBD. He knows his tweet will fire both sides up to distract from the 25 million dollar settlement of yesterday. Most conniving human on planet earth,” she wrote.
Teigen’s famous husband, John Legend, also joined the fray and offered up his own thoughts on the Hamilton dust-up.
“If #boycotthamilton goes like #boycottbeyonce I’m gonna start #boycottjohnlegend. S— seems lucrative,” he wrote.
