Delta and Bank of America take brave stand against free Shakespeare

Salon.com: It’s been nearly four weeks since the Public Theater’s production of Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar” began performances in Central Park. Its debut was scheduled — and announced — back in the fall.

Yet it was only this weekend, most notably after Fox News reported, “A New York City play appears to depict President Trump being brutally stabbed to death by women and minorities” that some corporate sponsors decided their “values” had been offended and withdrew their support for Shakespeare in the Park. Because when you think of integrity, the first words that leap to mind are Delta and Bank of America, right?
