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

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:

Khloé Kardashian Talks Starting A Family With Tristan Thompson As She Goes Off Birth Control On KUWTK Season Finale

Khloe Kardashian

Sorry Kim Kardashian West, Khloé Kardashian can't worry about being your surrogate right now… she has a family to plan of her own!

During the season finale of KUWTK on Sunday night, the 32-year-old admitted she may have "fake tried" to start a family with Lamar Odom — but now, she's super serious about the real deal with her beau Tristan Thompson.

When Khloé learned from her doctor that she had "fewer follicles" than "anticipated for a normal 32-year-old," Kris Jenner's daughter began to worry if she wouldn't be able to put a bun in the oven.

That's when KoKo followed her doctors orders to go off birth control — which eventually returned her follicle count to a normal level.

David Hasselhoff's Daughter Hayley Was Almost Twice The Legal Limit In DUI Case

Not good, Hayley Hasselhoff.

Last month, police found David Hasselhoff's daughter passed out behind the wheel of her Mercedes on a Los Angeles freeway off-ramp.

The 24-year-old was so plastered, officers said she "reeked of booze" and had to be sent to the hospital before she was booked at the Van Nuys police station.

So, it's no big shock that Hayley's blood alcohol was almost double the legal amount on that dangerous night.

TMZ reports that the Sharknado 4 actress blew a .14 the night of her arrest — almost twice the .08 legal limit in California!

Now, Hayley has officially received a misdemeanor level charge by the city attorney.

She faces up to 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted — an extremely rare sentence for first and even second-time offenders.

Take it easy, Mini-Hoff.
