Neil Patrick Harris doesn’t think the cast of Hamilton should have to apologize for reading a poignant letter to Vice President-elect Mike Pence at a performance over the weekend.
Donald Trump says that the cast was rude and has demanded an apology twice on behalf of the VP-elect.
“When you’re in the political spectrum and you go around on purpose proclaiming things, then karmically you may have to observe people who represent the things he’s against,” Neil expressed while attending the Cinema Society screening of Moana with his hubby David Burtka and their twins Gideon and Harper on Sunday (November 20) in New York City.
“I didn’t find what was said [by the Hamilton cast] at all offensive or mean,” Neil added (via Vulture). “In fact, their quieting people’s boos and their thinking about ways to articulate themselves effectively is a much different engagement than if they were just insulting someone. I know that Lin and that cast are intelligent and respectful and use their words with great intention. And so I think what was said was effective. I do worry about a President-Elect demanding an apology from people speaking their opinions.”
Also in attendance at the screening was Malin Akerman, Liev Schreiber and his two sons Alexander “Sasha”, 9, and Samuel, 7, Jason Biggs, his wife Jenny Mollen and their son Sid, Michael Kelly, Peter Hermann and his son Andrew, and Josh Lucas with his wife Jessica and their son Noah.
