NBC fires Donald Trump over racist comments

*The network just announced it is severing ties with the 2016 presidential hopeful in the wake of his recent comments about Mexican immigrants.
NBC said it will no longer carry the Trump-produced Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants, nor will he return to the long-running reality show “The Celebrity Apprentice” as host.

 “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.”

NBC’s move comes on the heels of Univision’s decision last week to give him the boot. The Spanish-language giant pulled the plug on its planned telecast of the Miss USA pageant after Trump’s statements earlier this month about Mexican immigrants.
