Actor trumps Trump after offensive remarks
LOO STOP A PUPPY PICK- UP
LATINA actor Eva Longoria has praised bosses at the NBC network for dropping their coverage of businessman Donald Trump’s beauty pageants following his controversial comments about Mexicans.
The Celebrity Apprentice host came under fire when he suggested Mexicans heading to America were bringing drugs and crime into the country when he launched his bid for the US presidency earlier this month.
Following the comments, Colombian star J Balvin cancelled his performance at the upcoming Miss USA show in July and bosses of Spanish- language network Univision dropped its coverage of all the Miss Universe Organisation’s pageants, which are part- owned by Trump.
NBC bosses followed suit on Monday and the former Desperate Housewives star has congratulated their decision, writing on social network Whosay. com: “Thank you @ nbc for respecting the Latino community and all of those who were painted by the broad brush of Donald Trump.” Trump has not apologised for his comments, and called NBC “weak” and “foolish” for its actions.
And yesterday, singer Natalie La Rose became the latest celebrity to drop out of the Miss USA spectacular because of Trump’s remarks.
Somebody hit- maker La Rose has announced she will no longer be performing.
La Rose’s mentor Flo Rida is currently still scheduled to perform at the 2015 Miss USA pageant, which will take place in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on July 12.
