Hamilton actor Brandon Dixon made headlines last Friday when he delivered a controversial message to vice president-elect Mike Pence at the Richard Rogers theater. However, what has yet to make the headlines are Dixon’s controversial history of racially charged, anti-police tweets. Here is a recalling to Dixon’s directed speech at Pence following the curtain call:
“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. We truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us.”
Pence took the high road after the speech, telling his accompanied son that “this is what democracy sounds like.” Yet despite Dixon’s attempt at a “noble” act, his Twitter history proves otherwise. Tweets have been recovered from Dixon’s account, revealing he was vehemently anti-police and had written questionable posts about “white women” and St. Patrick’s Day.
In one tweet Dixon writes: “More good than bad? Until I see LEGIONS of good cops in the street holding the bad cops accountable, they’re all complicit.”
In a tweet from 2012, Dixon also writes: “St. Patty’s day weekend is like Christmas for black dudes who like white chicks. Happy holidays boys.” More of Dixon’s Twitter history can be viewed below:
