TV station, Univision, took offense to Trump’s comments about Mexican immigrants, and they pulled out of airing the Miss USA pageant. NBC later followed in Univision’s footsteps and said they won’t air the Miss USA pageant as well. Trump’s conversational comments include him saying that some immigrants are “rapists” and “drug-dealers”. Trump recently talked at a presidential campaign about the “51 wonderful girls” who were affected by the cancellation. Trump said, “What NBC and Univision did to these young women was disgraceful.”
Trump has said he’s suing Univision for their cancellation but he has not mentioned suing NBC. And it seems the pageant is taking more hits as professional dancer Cheryl Burke said she’d no longer serve as co-host of the pageant, and shortly after, a spokesman for NBC confirmed that the other co-host, MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts, has also withdrawn from hosting duties.
