NBC Fires Donald Trump Regarding Derogatory Comments About Immigration

“You are fired,” NBC says to Donald Trump.

Regarding Trump’s offensive comments about illegal immigrants from Mexico during his Presidential announcement speech.

They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.

NBC responded to Trump’s disrespectful comments on Monday,

“At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values. Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump. In addition, as Mr. Trump has already indicated, he will not be participating in “The Apprentice” on NBC.

The Peacock network will no longer air the Miss USA and Miss Universe Pageants. Since “Celebrity Apprentice” is licensed from Mark Burnett’s United Artists Media Group, the reality show will continue to air without the hopeful President candidate.

The verdict is in: FOX cancels “The X Factor.”

Fox has cancelled the low ratings-reality series singing competition, “X Factor,” after three seasons.

“To all of us at Fox, Simon is more than one of the most prolific TV personalities of our time –he’s part of our family. A consummate showman and partner, there’s no one more passionate or creative than Simon, and we feel so fortunate to have enjoyed such a wonderful, collaborative relationship with him over the past 12 years,” said Kevin Reilly, chairman of entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Co. “Unfortunately, there is no ‘X Factor USA’ without Simon Cowell, but we understand and support his decision to focus on the international formats and on the next phase of his personal life. We wish him the very best, and it’s our sincere hope that we work together again soon.”

Executive producer, Simon Cowell also announced, he would return to the UK version of the series.  “I’ve had a fantastic time over the last 12 years, both on “The X Factor” and “American Idol,”” said executive producer and judge Simon Cowell in a statement. “And apart from being lucky enough to find some amazing talent on the shows, I have always had an incredible welcome from the American public (most of the time!). Last year, for a number of reasons, I had to make a decision to return [for the first time in four years] to the U.K. version of The X Factor in 2014. So for now, I’m back to the U.K. and I want to thank FOX for being an incredible partner and I also want to thank everybody who has supported my shows. America, I’ll see you soon!”
