Donald Trump found himself on the opposite side of the table in the boardroom when NBC announced they were “firing” him.
The fallout from Trump’s incendiary comments about Mexicans continues. “Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump,” the network announced. The network as also pulled the plug on the “Miss USA” and “Miss Universe” pageants which are all produced by Trump. It had been previously announced that Trump would not be on the new season of Celebrity Apprentice because of his bid for the White House.
Initially, NBC had just attempted to distance itself from from the controversy over the republican hopeful but face growing pressure. A Change.org petition asking the network to drop Trump had over 200,000 signatures as of Monday afternoon.
