NBC fires Donald Trump
NBC to Donald Trump: "You're fired."
Here's a statement NBC just put out regarding the end of their long, at times profitable, at times embarrassing, business partnership with the Donald:
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.
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 “Celebrity Apprentice” on NBC.
“Celebrity Apprentice” is licensed from Mark Burnett's United Artists Media Group and that relationship will continue.
The shame of it is, Jack Donaghy was just about to name Trump the new host of "MILF Island."
