Donald Trump Fired From NBC After Racial Remarks
Now that Donald Trump is running for President, instead of being busier, it seems he will have a lot of time on his hands since NBC has canned him from their network. Yes, the man who does the firing has now been fired. Well, pretty much. Trump owns the Miss Everything pageants which NBC has aired for many years but after he made a racial slur, when he announced that he was running for President, NBC has decided to say adios. NBC and Trump have both revealed that he will no longer helm the hit long-running reality show “The Apprentice” which is sad for viewers who may not have like the Donald but liked watching the hit television series. When it evolved into “Celebrity Apprentice,” it got even more exciting with personalities like Omarosa, Brandi Glanville, Bret Michaels and Dennis Rodman.
It was also home to the late Joan Rivers who appeared in the last season, filmed prior to her passing but aired after. NBC released a statement to Deadline and this is what they had to say about giving up Trump and his pageants:
“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 is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump.” NBC went on to say: “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 NBC.”
His comments were directed at those of Mexican descent as he felt that they should pay for a wall at the border so they could not pass through. But then he went on to clarify that he is a nice guy during his announcement, to make the negativity seem positive. I doubt that this whole situation will sway voters as I have looked on social media and have seen that there are several for Team Trump. Why? I do not know but does this make you want to stay away from anything Trump or does it not affect you one way or the other?
