It's not every day the cast of a sell-out Tony Award-winning musical call a halt to proceedings in order to deliver a speech to an audience member, but this is exactly what happened on Saturday night when the US' new vice president-elect, Mike Pence, was treated to a speech from actor Brandon Victor Dixon at the end of the show.

Despite Hamilton itself being a political show about the US' treatment of immigrants and has been praised by President Obama, Hillary Clinton and former Republican Vice President Dick Cheney, many of Trump's followers have launched a hashtag '#BoycottHamilton' in response to the cast daring to exercise their freedom of speech.

Thankfully, the show's fans are coming to the cast's defence and pointing out the flaws in attempting to boycott the show – you know, seeing as it's sold out until August 2017 and the whole world is desperate to get tickets for it.
