Filmmaker Michael Moore is lashing out at what he calls "right wing media" for questioning New York's The Public Theater and its production of "Julius Caesar" in which Caesar looked a lot like President Donald Trump. The controversy lead to corporate sponsors Bank of America and Delta to pull their sponsorship.
Moore is donating his $10,000 advance pay for his upcoming Broadway show "The Terms of My Surrender" to the theater company.
