Let’s get this straight: Portraying the stabbing death of the duly-elected President of the United States is not disturbing, but hearing pro-Trump protesters push back leaves this actor “sobbing”? Seriously?!
Young Conservatives reports:
One of the actors in the New York Public Theater’s rendition of Julius Caesar (the one with the Trump assassination scene) is claiming this week that pro-Trump protestors left him sobbing.
Oh, give me a break.
Corey Stoll, who played Brutus in the play, said he “exhaled and sobbed” after the final performance because they’d been interrupted by protestors so many times.
. . . . “In our last two performances, the security increased again, and the moment before the assassination became meta-theatrical,” he wrote. “As the conspirators covertly moved in on Caesar, I wondered how many eyes were on us, at the same time, waiting for their own cue?”
By the final show, Stoll said, the cast was “exhausted and nervous” and security again had to deal with a protester, who attempted to invade the stage and shouted “I’m sick of your bullshit!.” Stoll said that after the show he “exhaled and sobbed” backstage.
Never mind the violence this guy was partaking in by playing a role in the performance.
No, he was “nervous” about the protestors.
If you can’t take it, don’t dish it out, Snowflake.
