Loomer rushed the stage to protest the controversial Trump-related assassination scene of the Shakespeare in the Park production of Julius Caesar at the Delacorte Theater.
In a contemporary interpretation of the play, a Donald Trump lookalike with reddish blond hair and wearing a business suit rather than Roman robes is stabbed to death, a revision that author William Shakespeare never contemplated, but that has made national headlines. Ceasar’s wife, Calpurnia, is said to resemble first lady Melania Trump in the same production.
Some corporate sponsors, like Delta Air Lines and Bank of America, have withdrawn their financial support for the Public Theater’s production because of the play’s offensive content. Others, like CNN parent Times Warner, as well as the New York Times company, are still bankrolling the play.
At the moment when Trump was being gleefully murdered — an applause moment for America’s left-wing entertainment elites — Laura jumped on stage and condemned the play for normalizing political violence.
Laura was arrested held by police. The theatre company, by contrast, continues to produce their snuff show, glamorizing and normalizing violent terrorism in America.

UPDATE: Laura has been freed from jail. She is facing two charges: trespassing and disorderly conduct.
