As the release date for “Hamilton” approaches at Disney +, creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda says fans must prepare for something to change.

On Monday, when a fan went to Twitter to ask Miranda, 40, if the infamous word would appear, he explained that he had to commit.
To comply with the MPAA, the word will be muted in the song “Yorktown (The World Turned Upside Down)” and a record scratch was placed on the word in the song “Washington On Your Side”.
“… I literally said two f – ks so that the kids could see it,” the actor explained. “You can sing whatever you want at home (even sync the album)! I love you. Enjoy.”

Miranda previously spoke to a New York Times reporter about the possibility of censoring her program for a Disney release.
“If we have to silence a word here or there to reach the widest possible audience, I agree with that, because their children already have the original language memorized,” Miranda said. “I don’t think we are depriving anyone of anything if we silence an F bomb here or there to do our rating”
In addition to “Yorktown” and “Washington”, seven songs have improper warnings. For variety, there are also other songs that censor the F word for its comic effect.
