NBC Cuts Ties with Donald Trump, Pulls Miss USA Pageant

NBC is officially ending its relationship with Donald Trump after he came under fire for comments he made about Mexican immigrants while declaring his candidacy for President of the United States.

The network has announced that it will no longer air the planned Miss USA pageant or the upcoming Miss Universe pageant. Celebrity Apprentice will also not return to the channel.

“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,” the 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,” the statement continued.

The news comes just days after Univision announced it will not carry the pageant either.
