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!
