Woman held after acting up at Shakespeare performance

Woman held after acting up at Shakespeare performance

Tonight, Rebel reporter Laura Loomer was arrested in NY after interrupting the Broadway production of Julius Caesar, a play by William Shakespeare that had been politically altered to feature the assassination of U.S. President Donald Trump. "This is unacceptable", 24-year-old Laura Loomer yelled as she took the stage during the show's assassination scene.

Show officials announce that the show would pause as they tried to get Loomer off of the stage.

Posobiec continued to film himself saying "Goebbels would be proud" as he was escorted from the theatre, posting the video on Twitter with the caption: "Julius Caesar Gets SHUTDOWN". He then added, "You are all Nazis". You are inciting terrorists.

Scalise, a top-ranking Republican, was injured in a shooting at a congressional baseball practice on Wednesday in Alexandria, Virginia.

During the protest, Posobiec also shouted at audience members: "The blood of Steve Scalise is on your hands!" She was charged with disorderly conduct and trespassing, but was unremorseful after the incident.

Loomer tweeted: "I'm out of jail, but I'm not apologetic".

A woman who later identified herself on social media as Laura Loomer, a right-wing activist, stormed the stage following the production's assassination scene, shouting, "Stop the normalization of political violence against the right!" The alt-right agitators who interrupted Friday's Shakespeare in the Park performance of Julius Caesar fell squarely into the latter category.

After the Friday night disruption, Eustis issued a statement, "Two protesters disrupted our show tonight; we stopped the show for less than a minute and our stage manager handled it beautifully". The staff removed the protesters peacefully, and the show resumed with the line "Liberty!"

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.

On a lighter note, one audience member tweeted that during the brief interruption, even the very dead Caesar raised his bloody head to see what all the fuss was about.
