Bank of America joins Delta, pulls funding from theater group

NEW YORK (AP) - Bank of America is the latest company to have problems with a Manhattan-based theater company's portrayal of Julius Caesar as a Donald Trump look-alike who gets knifed to death.

The Charlotte, North Carolina-based company tweeted a statement Sunday night saying it's withdrawing its funding for the Public Theater's production of "Julius Caesar."

Earlier, Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines said it was pulling its sponsorship, saying "it crossed the line on the standards of good taste."
