â€œTheyâ€™re bringing drugs. Theyâ€™re bringing crime. Theyâ€™re rapists. And some, I assume, some are good peopleâ€ alleged Trump during his speech in June.
In response, Univision, the Spanish network which was scheduled to air his Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants severed ties with Trump and the Miss Universe Organization.
Less than a week later, NBC, the home of his popular reality series, Celebrity Apprentice has now fired Trump for his hate speech.
â€œDue to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump. To that end, the annual Miss USA and Miss Universe Pageants, which are part of a joint venture between NBC and Trump, will no longer air on NBCâ€ read a statement from the network.
E! NewsÂ reports that NBC decided to fire Trump afterÂ Guillermo CastaÃ±eda Jr. launched aÂ Change.org petition “Cancel Miss USA, Miss Universe, and the Apprentice” which received over 200,000 signatures.
â€œIn addition, as Mr. Trump has already indicated, he will not be participating in The Celebrity Apprentice on NBC. Celebrity Apprentice is licensed from Mark Burnett‘s United Artists Media Group and that relationship will continue.”
Instead of issuing an apology, Trump chastised the network in a statement posted on his Instagram page.
â€œNBC is weak and like everybody else is trying to be politically correct -this is why our country is in serious troubleâ€ his rant began.
â€œIf NBC is so weak and so foolish to not understand the serious illegal immigration problem in the United States, coupled with the horrendous and unfair trade deals we are making with Mexico, they their contract violating closure of Miss Universe/Miss USA Will be determined in court.â€
To add insult to injury, Trump through major shade at the network in saying, â€œâ€¦they will stand behind lyingÂ Brian Williams, but they wonâ€™t stand behind people that tell it like it isâ€¦â€
