NBC Drops Donald Trump in Response to Derogatory Comments

trump

It’s official… Donald Trump has made his final appearance on The Apprentice. This week he was on the receiving end of a job termination after several media partners severed ties with him in response to insensitive comments he made while announcing his candidacy for the President of the United States. He referred to Mexican immigrants as drug users, rapists and criminals, which led to Univision ending their partnership with Trump’s Miss Universe and Miss USA competitions. Now NBC has followed suit, dropping the same pageants while also removing Trump from Celebrity Apprentice for good. Here is the full statement from NBC:


“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.

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.”

NBC had previously released a statement clarifying that they did not agree with Trump’s opinions, but after over 200,000 people signed an online petition urging them to dump Trump, they had no choice but to bow to the pressure. The court of public opinion has spoken! It’s amazing that all of this fallout has come after just one speech… we can only hope he will continue to “trump” himself as this ill-advised presidential bid continues. Either way, the show will apparently go on without The Donald. Who would you like to see host Celebrity Apprentice and will you still tune in without him? (Of course you will.)

    But he clearly meant that the Mexican immigrants were merely figuratively “raping” the land

    N [oooooooooooooooooooooò

    Since an illegal alien with no drivers license and cocaine killed a respected member of my community a week ago, I know for a fact what the Don said is true.

  • pcch7

    It’s never easy, but ultimately, they made the right decision. He had to go. Hopefully CA can find a new home when he’s done trying to become president.

  • ryan cordova

    As a Native American, I’m appalled by all these white guys who come over here and shoot up schools, churches, and plant bombs around my country.

    When will the white community stand up against the appalling actions of their kind?

  • Daniel Lindquist

    They need to get P. Diddy as his replacement. It is the best idea I’ve ever had and it needs to happen.

  • Daniel Lindquist

    Your country? Please clarify.

  • ryan cordova

    The native land of my people that was taken through white violence, biological warfare, broken treaties, pure bigoted racism, and forced slavery.

    That clear enough?

  • Bandit Manatee

    John Taffer would be perfect. Has the general swagger and spunk of trump, and also lots of small business and entrepreneurial experience. Just imagine this guy in the board room.

  • Daniel Lindquist

    I’m not even going to bother trying to impress upon you your own fucking hypocrisy. You are claiming entitlement, exclusion and hate on the basis of race. Don’t ever, ever think for a moment you aren’t the problem.

  • ryan cordova

    Another apologist for white violence. Nobody is going to take the white community seriously unless the white leaders apologize for the despicable actions of their kind.

  • damndirtyape

    Those “white guys” all were born in the US and are citizens. They didn’t “come over here” they were born here and are legal citizens.

    Crazy white people cause enough problems, no need to add foreign convicted criminals and MS-13 gang members to the mix.

  • ryan cordova

    Another white apologist making excuses for the vile virus that is his people.

    I don’t hear your leaders denouncing white-on-white violence.

    When will you speak out against the violent culture you’ve perpetuated across what was once a beautiful land?

  • damndirtyape

    LOL nice trolling.

  • Justin H

    Hilarious. More fuel to his fire though. He was also, at least momentarily, ranking 2nd behind Jeb Bush…which is scary and even more hilarious. The republican party is just the best.

  • Bandit Manatee

    Seriously chill out. When you start calling whole groups of human beings “viruses” you’re not going to be taken seriously.

    You do know native peoples the United States today are afforded their own sovereign rights by treaty? Indian territory in the U.S. is technically another nation within a nation. What other ethnic group in the U.S. has these rights?

  • Nick Poliskey

    Get over it. Survival of the fittest.

  • Nothing to add, I just want to applaud the way you agitate these guys. Good work!

  • Nick Poliskey

    We have got to stop firing people over “comments”…. Did he murder someone? did he bomb innocent virgins? So he said something, big fucking deal……Freedom of speech should be an ideal we strive for and tolerate as a people, not just something the gov has to deal with.

  • Freedom of speech is to be allowed to say what ever you like (to a certain extent) without going to prison for it. Trump clearly will not go to prison for his speech.

    A private company can have what ever policy they like for what their employees are allowed to say.

  • ryan cordova

    When will the white man apologize for all of the white-on-everyone violence he causes?

  • ryan cordova

    I’ll remember that the next time a white kid shoots up another white school.

  • ryan cordova

    Oooooh thank god the white man finally kept a treaty with the natives of the land he invaded and destroyed through pestilence, lies, and backstabbing.

    Wherever would all those poor natives be without the white man to help them, you know, besides ALIVE.

  • ryan cordova

    Thank you for being intelligent enough to see the satire, it’s sooo much more fun when someone else sees it.

  • ryan cordova

    I’m amazed that there are seemingly a bunch of staunch conservatives who are pushing for the laws of a GOVERNMENT (Freedom of Speech) to overrule the financial motives and independent actions of a PERSON (NBC as a corporate entity is a person).

    It’s almost like they don’t understand their own ideology or something.

  • What amazes me is how people always seem to confuse censoring with companies unwillingness to look like jackasses.

    People should read about some of the dictatorships in the world to learn how it really is to be censored.

  • LongSlog

    I would watch every single second of this show. Taffer is a steam roller of pure manliness and raw energy. His ‘nice guy’ grin is fantastic too.

  • 1138sw

    Everything comes with a price even freedom of speech. You say something that pisses people off you pay for it. That’s why we have slander laws, hate speech laws and laws against incitement of violence. Freedom of speech is not just a right it’s a responsibility.

    Freedom of speech is not an absolute whether you live in the United States or other free Western democratic country.

    We may have the right to freedom of speech but I’ve got the right to sue or fire your ass if I feel like it…ideals which also thrive in this country.

    Nothing is unlimited even Freedom of speech. Societal structures are a matter of checks and balances ( which is how our government is designed to operate) not unmitigated freedoms.

    Yes we may have tolerance and should strive for such but even tolerance has it’s limits. If we were all completely and absolutely tolerant, blacks would still be sitting in the back of buses, women wouldn’t be allowed to work or vote and Gays wouldn’t be able to marry.

  • Daniel Lindquist

    How is that even kind of satire? You’re just saying obnoxious bullshit without even a hint of fucking “satire”.

  • ryan cordova

    Ahh the poor white man needs something so simple as satire explained to him.

    Perhaps you should’ve spent some more time evolving, and less time killing other people.

  • Bandit Manatee

    lol

  • damndirtyape

    lol yea fuck those Mexican wetbacks I hope they all die.

    Luckily everything I just wrote is just “satire” right?

  • Daniel Lindquist

    I know you think this is satire. Which is just so adorable, but there’s nothing even remotely satirical about what you are saying. Like I said earlier, you’re just being an obnoxious douchebag.

  • ryan cordova

    Aww, poor little white man has such an underdeveloped brain he can’t even look up the definition of the word satire. Is thinking really too hard for you?

    I’d suggest NASCAR, perhaps driving cars around in a circle is more your speed.

  • ryan cordova

    Become?

    Are you just now paying attention? People have always been insane.

    This IS a country established on the belief that all men are created equal while simultaneously holding onto slaves as being 3/5 of a person.

    THAT is pretty damn crazy.

  • Daniel Lindquist

    It’s probably fun for you to imagine people giving a shit about your juvenile, unimaginative and fucking boring trolling (no wait…satire! Are we still sticking with the satire thing?). Sorry, not the case. You’re just being an unfunny loser.

  • ryan cordova

    It’s clearly a lot more fun than you’re having.

    But hey, you sure sound like a lot of fun at parties.

    P.S. you care so little you’ve now replied to me five times. Surely you don’t give a shit at all.

  • Daniel Lindquist

    “Hey! Trolling message boards is fun.”

    Proceeds to tell someone ELSE they’re probably not fun at parties.

    Completely fails to see the irony.

  • ryan cordova

    “I SO DON’T CARE ABOUT YOU MAKING FUN OF ME, LET ME POST TWELVE MORE TIMES ABOUT HOW MUCH I DON’T CARE.”

    P.S. You should probably look up the word “irony” because you clearly don’t understand what it means.

  • Daniel Lindquist

    Couldn’t care less about anything you said. Mildly annoyed about how funny and cool you think you’re being.

  • ryan cordova

    Cool story bro.
