American Express is trying to have it both ways: Not offending liberal customers who see no problem with the content of a New York City play depicting the assassination of President Trump, while also attempting to claim its dollars aren’t going to support it.
On Monday, the company followed Delta and Bank of America in expressing its discomfort with the play by the NYC Public Theater.
“We would like to clarify that our sponsorship of the Public Theater does not fund the production of Shakespeare in the Park nor do we condone the interpretation of the Julius Caesar play,” the company tweeted.
That’s only slightly disingenuous, because, as anyone with common sense knows, once the funds go into the Public Theater’s coffers, they mix together and can be used to fund any production.
