Michael Moore Just Gave $10,000 To Shakespeare In The Park After Trump-‘Julius Caesar’ Production

Michael Moore donated $10,000 to the Public Theater in New York City following certain corporate sponsor withdrawals for the organization.

Via Twitter, Moore shared an image of a check he made payable to the Public Theater as a donation.

Moore made his case on Facebook, inviting his supporters to contribute to the Public Theater:

"In a time like this, it is important that we stand up against any attempts to censor art or free expression, especially by denying this expression the funding that it needs. As one who is about to stage my first theatrical event on Broadway, neither I nor anyone else in the theater should feel intimidated by what's happened here or ever worry about how much control certain sponsors or investors have over our work.

It's not a lot considering what is needed to fund America's most influential and iconic free Shakespeare festival, so I will reach out to the millions who follow me on social media and to others in the filmmaking and theatrical communities to help raise thousands more."
