On Friday night, Vice President-Elect Mike Pence took a break from leading Donald Trump's transition team and went to see "Hamilton" on Broadway.
Apparently when Pence entered the theatre for the show, he was booed by a lot of people, and the internet is loving it. Many people were shocked last week when Trump won the 2016 Presidential election, and they are not happy about Pence being in the White House either.
So, seeing Pence attending "Hamilton" had a lot of people up in arms, some thinking about how the "GOP is truly taking everything" good in life. Some New Yorkers have even planned to greet the former Indiana Governor outside the venue at 10:30 p.m. ET in protest.
Here's a video of Pence getting booed:
UPDATE: At the close of the musical, the cast had a special message for Pence. "We are the diverse America that are alarmed and anxious that you and your administration will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights, sir," he began. "We hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and work on behalf of all of us."
