Diggs, who played both Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson, celebrated his last performance by taking 40 shots out of the Grammy. 

It’s been a bittersweet month for the cast of Hamilton. Diggs is only the latest exit as a whole slew of the musical’s original cast leave to move on with their careers and pursue different projects. The show’s creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda left just last week, along with cast members Leslie Odom Jr., and Phillipa Soo.
