Hamilton star who lectured Mike Pence has just been dealt the ultimate dose of karma; time to rethink that apology!

Stage actor Brandon Victor Dixon may be rethinking whether he owes Vice President-elect Mike Pence an apology.

Dixon, who plays Aaron Burr in the Broadway musical “Hamilton” read a statement from the stage during a performance last week, lecturing Pence who was met with jeers from the audience when he and his family attended the show.

Dixon referred to a “jump off,” a casual sexual encounter, in re-tweet from 2013, Fox reported.

“Wow. When you decide to give a public lecture to the VP-elect, everything you have said now becomes public knowledge,” actor Dean Cain remarked, according to Fox.

Twitter users were appalled by Dixon’s past social media behavior and condemned the hypocrisy in tweets of their own.
