Washington D.C. [USA], Nov. 20 (ANI): Music stars like Pink and John Legend are reacting to US President-elect Donald Trump's demand for an apology from the cast of Broadway musical 'Hamilton'.

" Donald Trump has asked someone to apologize for being rude. Always good to start your Saturday off with a laugh," Pink tweeted Saturday morning.

After the curtain, 'Hamilton' actor Brandon Victor Dixon told VP-elect Mike Pence from the stage that the Broadway hit's multiracial and multicultural cast is concerned about the Trump administration.

The President-elect reacted early next morning with a tweet demanding that the cast apologize for being "rude" to Pence.

"Proud of @HamiltonMusical. Proud of @BrandonVDixon, for leading with love. And proud to remind you that ALL are welcome at the theater," wrote Lin-Manuel Miranda, best known for creating and starring in the Broadway musicals 'Hamilton' and 'In the Heights'.

"If #boycotthamilton goes like #boycottbeyonce I'm gonna start #boycottjohnlegend. Shit seems lucrative," tweeted John Legend.

Band Garbage bitterly wrote, "Trump wants an apology from what?!! History?!?! What a twat."

"Pence going 2 a Broadway show & xpecting not 2 get boo'd, is like going 2 a black family reunion xpecting not 2 hear FrankieBeverley&Maze," tweeted R&B and neo soul singer-songwriter Eric Benet.

""Hamilton Cast harassed Pence." Do u ever stop whining?An apology?Seriously?!U won,this is the job,get on with it or get out of the kitchen," tweeted 'Guns & Roses' frontman Axl Rose. (ANI)
