In the New York Public Theater's production of "Julius Caesar," a Trump-like Caesar, with blond hair, a long red necktie and a Slavic wife, who tweets from a golden bathtub, is violently knifed to death in a political assassination.
The similarity between Trump and Caesar caused controversy, with sponsors Delta Air Lines and Bank of America pulled their financial support, saying that the staging "crossed the line on the standards of good taste." And, on Friday, a protester interrupted the performance, running up on stage right after the "assassination."
From the stage, she shouted, "Stop the normalization of political violence against the right! This is unacceptable!" The protester, who identified herself on social media, went on to say, "This is violence against Donald Trump," and "You guys are just as bad as ISIS."
