US President-elect Donald Trump on Saturday demanded an apology from the cast of Hamilton for appealing from the stage to Mike Pence to "uphold our American values" while the vice-president-elect was attending a performance of the Broadway hit.
"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 wrote on Twitter, taking time out from his search for appointees to his incoming administration.
"Our wonderful future VP Mike Pence was harassed last night at the theater by the cast of Hamilton, cameras blazing. This should not happen!" Trump wrote.
A mix of boos and cheers greeted Pence, a Republican, as he entered the Richard Rodgers Theater in New York on Friday night to watch the highly acclaimed rap musical about the country's founding fathers, whose color-blind cast features African-American and Latino actors portraying the country's founding fathers, all of whom were white.
