A New York taxpayer-subsidized play depicting President Donald Trump being assassinated by being brutally stabbed to death in a lengthy scene, suddenly pulled their list of sponsors on Monday after receiving considerable negative backlash.
While two of the sponsors, Bank of America and Delta Airlines withdrew support for The Public Theater, a New York Shakespeare group that offers free tickets to anyone who wants to see the President of the United States, Donald Trump in what is masqueraded as a rendition of Julius Caesar, assassinated.
As you can see, under the group’s website where “Corporate Partners” are supposed to be listed, the names have been removed, however, prior to its removal, CNS News was able to copy down the list of sponsors (We have removed B of A and Delta following their announcements):
- The Luesther T. Mertz Charitable Trust
- Blavatnik Family Foundation
- The Harold and Mimi Steinberg New Play Development Fund
- The Philip and Janice Levin Foundation
- Time Warner Foundation
- American Express
- New York
- Today Tix
- NYC Culture Department
- New York Council on the Arts
- Art Works

“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. We have notified them of our decision to end sponsorship as the official airline of The Public Theater effective immediately,” Delta said in a statement.
As you can see from the clip below via Inside Edition, the play “Julius Caesar” character is obviously portrayed as President Donald Trump. You can bet that if it were Obama being stabbed to death in the play, there would already be riots in the streets.
