“I’m not protesting because it’s my best friend’s 25th birthday and her life is more important to me than anything you could ever do or be involved in,” Waterbury wrote in addressing the star dancer — while also posting the headline from an online editorial in September titled, “Why You Should Boo Amar Ramasar in the ‘West Side Story’ Revival.”
