Sponsors Pulled Their Sponsorship From The Public Theater Because Of “Trump Killing” Scene

It’s a shame that some people do not respect the president of the United States. Dragging him through the dirt all the time shows how disgusting these people are.

A “Shakespeare in the Park” production of Julius Caesar by the Public Theater features a mock assassination of a President Trump lookalike. William Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar,” which opened May 23 and is causing a stir among audiences due to its apparent inspiration from the Trump administration.

We are tired of all the violence and negativity. He’s our president. This is beyond hateful and there is a real danger this type of stupidity will lead to some idiot trying to hurt the President.

But, karma is a bit*h! And you will love this!!! After the sick assassination scene was performed, Public Theater’s both biggest sponsors Delta Air Lines and Bank of America have announced their intentions of pulling their sponsorship from the Public Theater.

Delta Air Lines released their statement saying: “No matter what your political stance may be, the graphic staging of Julius Caesar at this summer’s Free Shakespeare in the Park does not reflect Delta Air Lines’ values. Their artistic and creative direction crossed the line on the standards of good taste.”

Bank of America who had partnered with the Public Theatre for 11 years, added it was withdrawing funding for the production.

They released their statement on Twitter, saying: “The Public Theater chose to present Julius Caesar in such a way that was intended to provoke and offend. Had this intention been made known to us, we would have decided not to sponsor it.”

American multinational financial services corporation American Express also took to Twitter to clarify that their sponsorship doesn’t support the Julius Caesar play.

They wrote: “We would like to clarify that our sponsorship of the Public Theater does not fund the production of Shakespeare in the Park nor do we condone the interpretation of the Julius Caesar play.”

Kudos to Bank of America and Delta for making the right thing and pulled their sponsorship of this atrocious depiction of Julius Caesar!

Meryl Streep and Julius Caesar play director, Oskar Eustis are seen hanging out below.

This is disgusting, no respect, no decency!!!! Just because we have freedom of speech, doesn’t mean this is right!

There are limits to everything. Freedom of speech goes so far -but, this is beyond that limit! This is inciting more hate and glorifying the assassination of our sitting President!

Free Trump Gear

This is beyond stupid. These disrespectful idiots are hoping that President Trump will fail. Well folks what do you think will happen to America if we continue to act this way. Why would anyone want to be president of this country. We are slowly sliding down a slippery slope. We don’t need ISIS to destroy us, we are doing it ourselves.

If I were him I would say stick it where the sun don’t shine and take my billions out of American businesses and move somewhere where they are appreciated. He doesn’t need this job. He took it because he believes he can make things better.

You just enclosed everything that I wanted to say. Nothing to add to it!
I wouldn’t accept his job even if they would pay me million per month. Who wants to work with idiots!? Why would you like to deal with stupid people having enough money in your bank account instead to run away from them!
The ONLY valid answer is “LOVE”
And this apply to anyone and anything. When we love we can move the mountains. Trump loves his country and his people ( he is a people person) and he believes that he can change this country for better place.

Thank you Bank of America and Delta. You stood up to hate! Good for you! What are you liberals wanting to happen in our country? Why is it that you do not want what is best for the American people? Your example is anarchy and lack of respect. I’m ashamed of you!

What ever happened to the charge “communicating a threat to another person” If you want to re-enact the death of someone already dead there shouldn’t be any problem, however if the person is alive, this is subject to prosecution! There could be a person that has been exposed to things like MK Ultra, where there is a person that has been psychologically exposed to kill the sitting President upon being exposed to a word or a scene where the killing takes place. It’s like having a Trojan virus downloaded in a computer, and when the letter “o” is depress it gives a signal to load the virus. A person with these problems can do much harm. This is a threat, not a joke! Everybody in the cast of the theater and all that were part of it should be investigated and at minimum be charged a fine of some sort. Unbelievable!

Sick of these Hollywood Liberals thinking they can do whatever they want, like they are above everyone and that rules and laws do not apply to them. Clearly they are lacking common sense. Glad some backlash is hitting them, but more needs to be done to get this pathetic shit they are pulling shut down.

I did not see the play.. And frankly I’m glad I did not see it. It is very disturbing that they would make such a play. It does insight violence. He is our 45 President of the United States Of America. And even though many out there have different views of speech being in a roll model of a public play is going beyond the shadow of a double what they truly want to express publicly of their own devious thoughts. The producers and all involved in the minds behind such thought of and acting upon in expressing their thoughts, and honoring of such self thought that they would like to see played out in reality, in like a conspiracy plot. The only difference is “it a play instead of a true crime scene”. In my option when such things and plots like this come into public views, there should be charges brought against the producers and all involved in the minds behind such thought of and acting upon in expressing their thoughts, honoring of such self thought that they would like to see played out in reality, should have charges brought against them. But that’s just my option.

Meryl Streep is an ugly person. She used to be my favorite actress. I never knew such vile comments about our President would come from her. I thought she was a very gracious person and she always gave that impression but underneath, I think she thought she deserved all the awards she received and those she did not receive as well. She is not a beautiful woman but I have to say she is an exceptional actress. But this liberal “thing” that has most of Hollywood entertainers drinking the Kool-Aid is really getting out of hand. People, the majority of the US voted for President Trump, accept it and go on with your lives. You must be miserable right now trying to think of the next thing to fire out against the President. Meryl Streep is getting old and has nothing better to do because not many movie roles are coming her way. Settle down Meryl and accept growing old graciously.

Meryl Streep and her associates are reprehensible, acting against our Democracy and 2 party system’s intent..to the point of being subversive and anarchist. I regret ever giving any kind words to her and such as these who fan the flames of violence, totalitarianism, and division.

It’s a sad day for America when we think this is theater. Thank goodness this funding was pulled. Even if they get funding people who care about America whether they like or dislike our President should boycott this play if they care about America at all. This play is certainly created by the graduated snow flakes.

This play advocates hate and violence. Decent American’s are sick and tired of these “Artists”, and the audiences that follow and agree with this. Thanks to this kind of production and the actors in it, we have hate crimes .
