Delta, Bank Of America Pull Sponsorship Of New York’s Public Theater After Depiction Of Trump Look-Alike Murdered



NEW YORK (AP) — Delta Air Lines and Bank of America have announced that they are pulling their sponsorship of a Manhattan-based theater company’s portrayal of Julius Caesar as a Donald Trump look-alike in a business suit who gets knifed to death on stage.

Atlanta-based Delta released a statement on Sunday saying it was pulling its sponsorship from The Public Theater “effective immediately.”

“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,” the statement said. “Their artistic and creative direction crossed the line on the standards of good taste.”

Later Sunday night, Charlotte, North Carolina-based Bank of America said it was withdrawing its funding for the production.

“The Public Theater chose to present Julius Caesar in such a way that was intended to provoke and offend,” the bank said in a tweet. “Had this intention been made known to us, we would have decided not to sponsor it.”

Performances at Central Park’s Delacorte Theater began in late May, just days before comedian Kathy Griffin was widely condemned for posing for a photograph in which she gripped a bloodied rendering of Trump’s head.

Oskar Eustis, the Public Theater’s artistic director who also directed the play, said earlier in a statement that “anyone seeing our production of ‘Julius Caesar’ will realize it in no way advocates violence towards anyone.”

Messages seeking comment from The Public Theater weren’t immediately returned.

Earlier Sunday, Donald Trump Jr. retweeted a Fox News story about the play and wrote, “I wonder how much of this ‘art’ is funded by taxpayers? Serious question, when does ‘art’ become political speech & does that change things?”

  1. It should be noted that theatre companies have performed presentations of Julius Caesar with a black man and a Hillary Clinton lookalike being killed and not a word of protest or loss of sponsorship was heard.

  2. Radicals doubling down on evoking presidential assassination fantasies learn about cause and effect.

    You would think that Kathy Griffin’s stunt would have given radicals pause. But no. Now a cherished institution has allowed themselves to sink to the level of useful idiocy, beating the death drums of retribution for an election sorely and decisively lost. How soon before the lunatic fringe tries to make their dark fantasy a reality?
