Getting Donald Trump off NBC's SNL
Donald Trump’s racist comments about Mexican immigrants led to NBC to cutting ties with him the summer of 2015. So when Brave New Films found out Lorne Michaels, head of NBC's Saturday Night Live, wanted to bring on Donald Trump as host in November of 2015, we joined with allies, like the National Association of Latino Indpendent Producers, and made this video calling on our base to take action.
Our supporters called Mr. Michaels' office demanding he #dumptrump from SNL. In the end, Donald Trump made his apperance, but we're still proud of all the calls and huge efforts of our supporters to get him off the show.
NBC's decision to keep Trump on didn't just hurt Hispanics and Latinos – it was a betrayal to all that supported NBC’s earlier decision to stop associating with a person who spews hateful rhetoric and pushes a worldview of intolerance.
A special thanks is owed to all who stood up to NBC.
