President-elect Donald Trump believes the cast of the hit Broadway show “Hamilton” was “rude” to Vice President-elect Mike Pence after he attended a Friday evening performance of the musical in New York City, and the real estate mogul thinks his White House teammate deserves an apology.

“Our wonderful future V.P. Mike Pence was harassed last night at the theater by the cast of Hamilton, cameras blazing. This should not happen!” Trump tweeted Saturday morning.

“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!” he tweeted minutes later.

Pence was also booed by the crowd in attendance.

As the Vice President-elect was walking out after the end of the show, he was directly addressed by the cast.

“Vice President-elect Pence, we welcome you and we truly thank you for joining us here at ‘Hamilton: An American Musical.’ We really do,” said cast member Brandon Dixom, who plays Aaron Burr.

“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, sir.

“But we truly hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and work on behalf of all of us. All of us. Thank you.”

Dixon, who urged the audience not to boo Pence, said the show was performed by “a diverse group of men and women of different colors, creeds and orientations.”

The crowd loudly cheered and applauded Dixon’s remarks.

Dixon replied to Trump’s remarks Saturday morning, tweeting “Conversation is not harassment sir. And I appreciate @mike_pence for stopping to listen.”

The show itself has been used for political purposes before.

Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator of “Hamilton” is no stranger to political issues, having strongly backed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in this year’s election.

In addition, a benefit version of the musical was performed in July as a fundraiser for Clinton, with tickets going for as much as $10,000 each.
