Musicians Axl Rose and the E Street Band's Little Steven are weighing in on the Hamilton-Pence controversy.
FOX's Laura Ingle has details in "Bonus Track":
Guns N' Roses singer Axl Rose is the latest classic rocker to weigh in on the incident between Vice President-elect Mike Pence and the cast of the Broadway musical "Hamilton" after one of the stars of the hit show read a prepared statement to Pence who was in the audience last Friday, expressing his concern that a Trump-Pence administration would not protect the "inalienable rights of all American citizens."
President-elect Trump has called for the show to apologize to Pence, who took the speech in stride.
The cast and producers of Hamilton, which I hear is highly overrated, should immediately apologize to Mike Pence for their terrible behavior

Axl Rose tweeting:
"Hamilton Cast harassed Pence." Do u ever stop whining?An apology?Seriously?!U won,this is the job,get on with it or get out of the kitchen.

Steven Van Zandt of the E Street Band also chimed in, despite being against the policies of Trump and Pence, tweeting that the creator of "Hamilton" should apologize.
Hamilton made a mistake. Audiences shouldn't have to worry about being blindsided like that. Theater should be sanctuary for Art to speak.
