Ava DuVernay Defends Hamilton Cast From Donald Trump

SPEAKING OUT: Ava DuVernay

AVA DUVERNAY has spoken out on behalf of the cast of Hamilton, in light of Donald Trump’s recent comments condemning the cast for their treatment of Vice President-elect, Mike Pence.

Pence, who attended a showing of Hamilton on Nov 18, was met with boos from the crowd due to his attendance. This prompted a retort from Donald Trump, where he demanded that the cast apologise to Pence and sparked the hashtag #BoycottHamilton.

DuVernay tweeted Trump, saying: “Artists will never apologize for speaking truth to power. Keep asking. Keep getting put in your place. It’s on.”
