Hamilton Actor Javier Muñoz Forced To Go Into Hiding After Targeted Harassment Following Mike Pence Visit

Javier Munoz

This is the world we live in. Truly upsetting.

Javier Mu├â┬▒oz is speaking out after a terrifying experience of being targeted by harassment following Mike Pence‘s visit to the Hamilton show back in 2016. As you may remember, the cast directed a conversation about equality toward the Vice President Elect (at the time) after the performance — and Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s understudy says he has been threatened online and at his home ever since.

The threats ultimately caused recent backlash when he seemingly lashed out at a fan online, which Javier is now apologizing for. After being forced to delete his Facebook for security reasons, he is now having to relocate his home as he received a handwritten letter on his door with hateful messages.

Read his full note and his experience from his own words (below):

Wow. Stay safe, Javier!
