"HAMILTON" Star Promoted Rape Culture On Twitter

By now, most everyone has heard about the bru-ha-ha when Brandon Victor Dixon, star of the play "Hamilton", lectured Vice-president-elect Mike Pence from the stage. For the most part, Dixon, was lauded by his peers for the bravery of such an act. An act indeed!

It turns out that Brandon Victor Dixon promoted rape culture in a Tweet from 2012. A screen capture is included below in case he erases the Tweet. As it stands today, he's not getting much blowback except from people Tweeting on his account. The usual outlets of anger and rage are totally silent. What's the phrase? Make this go viral!

Yep - let's get some white chicks drunk for some date raping. Here are a few of the comments from his Tweety page:

- Misogyny and rape culture
- Brandon you're a sick dude
- You're a disturbed man who has no right to lecture anyone about morals. Apologise
- Wow contributing to rape culture
- Are we just going to ignore this?
