Univision dumps Trump, cancels Miss USA over his comments about Mexicans

Published On June 26, 2015 | By Morgan Ryan | Entertainment News

Univision is dumping the Miss USA pageant, which is owned by DONALD TRUMP, because of his anti-Mexico comments in his campaign kick-off speech.  Trump is threatening to sue them for “hundreds of millions of dollars” for breach of contract.

 

And NBC, which broadcasts the pageant in the U.S., tried to do some damage control by saying, quote, “Donald Trump’s opinions do not represent those of NBC, and we do not agree with his positions on a number of issues, including his recent comments on immigration.”

That said, they’re still planning to air the show live on July 12th.

 

Ricky Martin took to Twitter to slam Trump.

 

“Mucho odio e ignorancia en tu corazón @realDonaldTrump. #LatinosUnidos,” Martin tweeted on Thursday, June 25, which translated into English reads: “There’s much hatred and ignorance in your heart @realDonaldTrump.”
