Hamilton producers under fire over racist casting call

The Tony-winning Broadway hit "Hamilton" has been accused of being racist when it comes to casting actors.



The Actors' Equity Association Union says the show's casting call posted on Hamilton's website asked specifically for "non-white actors," and the union says that statement is not in compliance with its rules.



Producers of the show issued an apology and changed the wording on the post to "seeking men and women for non-white characters."
