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.

Do you agree with NBC’s decision?
