Lin-Manuel Miranda reacts to “valid” criticism of Hamilton after the release of Disney + – E! Online


Lin-Manuel Miranda wants Hamilton fans know that he hears their concerns.The hit Broadway musical was premiered on Disney + this week and has largely renewed applause for the actor’s writing, but praise comes with criticism.

A major concern among critics is that Miranda did Alexander Hamilton and other founding fathers have turned out to be honorable figures, while ignoring the fact that many men who signed the Constitution have contributed to the troubling history of slavery in the United States.

As an influential researcher Roxane Gay said on Twitter, “I have a lot of thoughts about Hamilton and how he idealizes the founders, and how such a brilliant musical dangerously eludes the reality of slavery but Leslie Odom Jr. put your FOOT in this performance. So talented. ”

Gay was not the only one to share a complementary and critical opinion, as many others shared on social networks that they were in conflict on the subject.
