It’s only Monday, and the bad news has already started to add up for Donald Trump. After J Balvin withdrew from his slated performance at the Miss USA pageant following his claims that Mexico is bringing “rapists” and bottom-of-the-barrel people into the United States, Univision also decided to boycott Trump, announcing it wouldn’t air the pageant. Now, Trump has also lost the support of NBC. The network announced today that it won’t run the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants.
“Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump,” NBC said in a statement. “At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values.”
A Change.org petition was started just four days ago asking NBC to “dump Trump,” and it didn’t even need the 300,000 supporters it requested.
Trump already knew that he would have to give up The Apprentice, but now, he’ll have to scramble to find a new home for Miss USA, which is supposed to air on July 12. So he has a whole 12 days to make it happen.
I can’t wait until his next passive aggressive act because we all know how petty this man is.
Update 10/16/15: Donald Trump will be hosting Saturday Night Live in November. A new petition started after NBC made the announcement is asking the network to dump him once again.
