Woman storms play over Trump reference

A New York production of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar with a Trump-like character who is killed off has sparked a protest by an activist who stormed the stage, yelling, "Do you want Trump to be assassinated?"

Police say Laura Loomer, 24, was arrested on Friday evening during the production presented in Central Park by the city's Public Theatre. She was charged with criminal trespass and disorderly conduct.

Loomer was released but asked to appear in court to respond to the charges at a later date.

The conservative activist said on social media that she's not apologetic about interrupting the production.

Delta and Bank of America have both pulled their sponsorship of the Public Theatre, which is known for its edgy, modern productions.
