US President Elect Donald Trump has asked for an apology after Vice President Elect Mike Pence was booed by audience members, then singled out by the cast of the musical “Hamilton” in New York Friday night.

Video shot from inside the Richard Rogers Theater shows Pence waving after he walks through an angry crowd all the while eliciting sneers, boos, and some cheers.

“The crowd continued to mock Pence throughout the performance, including during the song ‘Yorktown,’ when Alexander Hamilton and Marquis de Lafayette sang ‘Immigrants, we get the job done.’ They high-fived each other as the audience cheered,” the New York Post reports.

When the show was over, Pence was singled out by cast members on stage who claimed they were “alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us.”

“Vice President-elect Pence, we welcome you, and we truly thank you for joining us here at ‘Hamilton: An American Musical.’ We really do,” actor Brandon Victor Dixon said.

“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. Again, we truly thank you truly for (sharing) this show, this wonderful American story told by a diverse group of men and women of different colors, creeds and orientations.”

President Elect Trump was not happy with the theater and the cast members’ lack of respect for the future vice president, and asked for an apology for the undue harassment.

Trump supporters and even campaign staffers backed him up, and within a few hours the hashtag #BoycottHamilton was trending on Twitter.

The play has seemingly always been oriented toward a liberal audience.

Just last month the creator of “Hamilton,” Lin-Manuel Miranda, was cheered after changing the lyrics to one of the play’s songs at a Hillary Clinton fundraising event to reflect a pro-Hillary slant.

Hillary Clinton herself quoted lines from the musical back in July after securing the Democrat nomination.

The play’s creator was ecstatic about the endorsement and tweeted his support for Hillary.
