President-elect Donald Trump scolded the cast of the hit Broadway musical "Hamilton" Saturday after the play's cast "harassed" Vice President-elect Mike Pence Friday during a performance of the play — even calling on the cast to apologize to Pence.

Liberals lauded the cast for speaking out. But now, conservatives who feel personally insulted by the cast's remarks are calling for a boycott of the play.

Using the hashtag "#BoycottHamilton," conservatives took to Twitter Saturday to voice their disdain with what was perceived as an attack on conservatism as a whole.

The hashtag became the number one topic on Twitter Saturday afternoon.

Still, liberals took to Twitter to mock those calling for a boycott of the popular musical, saying those calling for the boycott either couldn't afford tickets to the play or don't even know what it's about.
