What an incredibly courageous move!

As you probably heard, Donald Trump announced his presidential bid last week with a rather racist speech.

Well, now it looks like his Miss USA pageant is feeling some of the heat for his remarks, because latin artist J Balvin just cancelled his performance for the July 12 event on Wednesday!

You see, J is Colombian and didn't feel right working with the Celebrity Apprentice star following his anti-Mexico rant.

In an interview, the 30-year-old singer talked about his decision, saying:

"It was going to be my first performance on national television. But we're talking about our roots, our culture, our values. This isn't about being punitive, but about showing leadership through social responsibility. His comments weren't just about Mexicans, but about all Latins in general."

Good for you, J!

We're glad people aren't just sitting back and letting Donald share his hateful words.

Will U be watching Miss USA now??
