An actor performing in a New York production of Frozen the Broadway Musical became incensed by a member of the audience waving a Trump re-election flag and confronted the man down in the seats.
The actors were taking bows at the end of the musical play at New York City’s St. James Theatre when an audience member in the front row began waving a Trump 2020 re-election flag.
That is when the actor went wild and stepped forward from the stage and leaned down into the gallery, according to New York’s Channel 4:
The actors were doing their bows during the encore at the St. James Theatre when the audience member in the front row starting waving the flag.
Seeing it, actor Timothy Hughes — who plays Pabbie the wise troll in the musical — snatched it and threw it behind the stage.
In an Instagram post on the incident, Hughes said he was unapologetic.
“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?,” he said. “How frightening is it that our show’s messages of love, acceptance, and diversity have become the opposition to supporting Trump?”
Hughes added that the curtain call was supposed to be a final connection between audience and actors, and he wouldn’t have his cast be interrupted.
“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!”
