The New York Times on Monday stated that it would continue as sponsor of New York Public Theater's production of "Julius Caesar," despite a social uprising over the depiction of Caesar looking very much like President Donald Trump.

CNN parent company Time Warner also remains as a sponsor of the play in which Caesar, or Trump, in this case, gets assassinated at the end.

While at least two major corporate sponsors have pulled their support over the controversy, the two media companies remained steadfast in their support of Shakespeare in the Park.

"We have sponsored Shakespeare in the Park for 20 years. As an institution that believes in free speech for the arts as well as the media, we support the right of the Public Theater to stage the production as they chose," the Times said in a statement.
