It did not take long for a Donald Trump supporter to respond to the way the Broadway cast of “Hamilton” treated Vice President-elect Mike Pence.

BroadwayWorld reports a Trump supporter disrupted the Saturday night performance of “Hamilton” in Chicago.

The audience member, who was sitting in the balcony, reportedly shouted, “We won! You Lost! Get over it! F*ck you!” during the number “Dear Theodosia.”

One Twitter user, BroadwayWorld notes, claims that the disrupter ended up in a conflict with security prior to being removed from the theater. (RELATED: Pence On Being Lectured By ‘Hamilton’ Cast: ‘I Wasn’t Offended By What Was Said’)

Additionally, a Facebook user wrote, “At the end, the performers were crying… so was I. They didn’t break characters once. They still sang their hearts out.”

The cast of “Hamilton” initially stepped into the political spotlight Friday night when Pence attended a show with his family that evening and was booed by audience members, as well as singled out for criticism by cast members throughout the performance.

After the curtain call, the cast all appeared on stage to address Pence directly. Cast member Brandon Victor Dixon, who plays Aaron Burr in the show, lectured Pence.

Donald Trump criticized the Hamilton cast on Twitter saying they “harassed” Pence, and called for an apology to his running mate.Trump also tweeted Sunday morning that the play was “overrated.”

Also on Sunday, Pence remarked he wasn’t offended by the cast members’ comments.
