Univision cancels Donald Trump’s Miss USA telecast after his comments about Mexicans
When Donald Trump made some comments about Mexicans last week, American Spanish-language TV network Univision was not happy. In response, the network has canceled its plans to air the Miss USA pageant, an event partially owned by Trump.
The comments came in Trump’s speech announcing his run for president.
“[Mexico is] sending people that have lots of problems, and they are bringing those problems to us. They are bringing drugs, and bringing crime, and their rapists,” the business mogul said.
NBC has traditionally broadcast the pageant, along with Univision in recent years. (Univision is under the same corporate umbrella as NBC.)
As for the peacock network, an NBC spokesperson said, "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."
Trump is fighting back on this. The GOP White House hopeful told Deadline, “We’ll be bringing a major lawsuit against Univision for defamation, and also they owe us a lot of money.” — Emily Rome
