NBC Universal has ended their relationship with American media businessman and 2016 Presidential hopeful Donald Trump as consequences for his recent derogatory comments about Mexican immigrants.
NBC dropped Trump’s beauty pageants and said he will not feature in The Apprentice anymore.
Last week, Univision announced it would not air Trump’s Miss USA pageant. Saying in a statement that “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,” statement read.
“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.”
“In addition, as Mr. Trump has already indicated, he will not be participating in The Apprentice on NBC.”
“Celebrity Apprentice is licensed from Mark Burnett’s United Artists Media Group and that relationship will continue.”
