Activists plan to protest Donald Trump’s appearance on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend and are calling cast members of the NBC show to condemn his hardline stance against illegal immigration and past statements made against Mexicans.
In a call with reporters Friday, activists accused the Republican presidential candidate of using racist language and said that NBC had no business giving him the free airtime. In his speech announcing his candidacy back in June, Mr. Trump said that Mexico sends immigrants to the U.S. who are “bringing drugs” and are “rapists.”
“He doesn’t deserve an additional 90-minute campaign ad,” said Justin Krebs of the liberal group Move On, which collected 150,000 signatures on a petition against Mr. Trump’s appearance.
Mr. Trump brushed off the criticisms earlier this week and said that his appearance will help drive record ratings to the show.
“Look, I think they should demonstrate,” Mr. Trump said during a press conference to announce his new book Tuesday. “Ratings will go even higher than they are going to be. It’s going to be one of their highest-rated shows ever and they’re very excited about it.”
A NBC spokeswoman didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment Friday.
