Sponsors Pull Funding From Play That Shows The Murder Of A Donald Trump-Like Julius Caesar

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesPolitikDonald TrumpControversyMelania Trump

UPDATE 8:27 P.M. EST: The Public Theater responded to the controversy on Monday with the following statement:

"We stand completely behind our production of 'Julius Caesar.' We recognize that our interpretation of the play has provoked heated discussion; audiences, sponsors and supporters have expressed varying viewpoints and opinions. Such discussion is exactly the goal of our civically-engaged theater; this discourse is the basis of a healthy democracy. Our production of 'Julius Caesar' in no way advocates violence towards anyone. Shakespeare's play, and our production, make the opposite point: those who attempt to defend democracy by undemocratic means pay a terrible price and destroy the very thing they are fighting to save. For over 400 years, Shakespeare's play has told this story and we are proud to be telling it again in Central Park."


Directed by Kathy Griffin?

A production of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar has come under fire for putting a Donald Trump spin on the titular role — who just so happens to get assassinated.

The New York-based arts organization put Trump look-alike Gregg Henry in the starring role, which saw Caesar as a bombastic businessman who wore long red ties and had a wife with a Melania Trump-esque Slavic accent.

The play will open on Monday at The Delacorte Theater in Central Park, but early previews are already enraging some sensitive theatergoers — because in the play, Roman senators stab Caesar to death out of fear he's getting too power hungry!

Needless to say, not everyone was happy to see a POTUS-like Caeser get assassinated during NYC's Free Shakespeare in the Park, and sponsors were quick to respond as well.

On Sunday, Delta Airlines pulled its funding of the theater group in response to the spiraling criticism. The company said the theater "crossed the line" in a statement, writing:

This year's Tony Awards wasn't afraid to get political.

We can't say we're shocked to report this as the award show's host Kevin Spacey is pretty familiar with the world of political corruption as he plays Frank Underwood in the celebrated Netflix series House Of Cards. While the musical performances and the inspiring acceptance speeches were the stars of the evening, some of the political moments at the Tonys stole the spotlight.

Not only did Spacey enlist Robin Wright's help to bring their HoC characters to life on stage, but the A-lister also dressed as Bill Clinton and made some email related jabs at Hillary Clinton's expense. Oh, and you don't want to miss Stephen Colbert's latest mocking of Donald Trump!

Joe Biden was also in the audience at the Tonys as his wife, Jill Biden, introduced the cast of Bandstand for their musical performance. Unsurprisingly, the former second lady got a standing ovation during her appearance.

Catch the political highlights from this year's Tony Awards (below). Enjoy!
