A supporter of President Donald Trump unfurled a banner that said “Re-Elect Trump” during a curtain call following a performance of Disney’s “Frozen” on Broadway.
Actor Timothy R. Hughes grabbed the banner and tossed it to the side
Hughes defended his actions on Instagram where he posted a video of the incident:
What does it say about our country and politics when a man at the show tonight felt the need to protest Disney’s Frozen on Broadway with a pro Trump flag?? How frightening is it that our show’s messages of love, acceptance, and diversity have become the opposition to supporting Trump?
The curtain call is a thank you between actors and audience, a final connection to end a shared experience. I will not apologize for how I responded to the disrespectful man trying to interrupt this moment with a pathetic political platform.
Not at our show! Not in front of my beautiful, diverse, talented cast.
