The group wrote in a letter sent to Michaels and NBC CEO Steve Burke:

"We are appalled that you would enable Trump's hateful speech for nothing (more) than a ratings ploy and ask that you rescind the SNL invitation."

But Hispanic activists aren't the only ones upset about the former Apprentice star's upcoming stint as host!

Margaret Cho is also blasting producers for Trump's invitation and for the lack of Asian-American representation in the show's long running history! She said:

Kristen Wiig & Bill Hader Become Real Housewives Of New York For Andy Cohen & They Couldn't Be MORE Perfect!

kristen wiig bill hader reenact rhony scene

This just may be one of the best segments Andy Cohen has ever done.

The Watch What Happens Live host had Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig on and had them recreate a HIGHlarious Real Housewives of New York scene between Ramona Singer and Kristen Taekman and they absolutely NAILED IT.

Kristen did Ramona's accent perfectly and Bill screams at her with such disdain that they could have actually been channeling the two housewives.

It's pretty perfect!

But on a more ridiculously serious note, can someone create a TV show where these two imitate infamous Real Housewives scenes?

Seriously, get Lorne Michaels on it!

Ch-ch-check out the brilliance (below)!!!

Kanye West Defends Drake & The Rolling Stone Debacle, Then Goes OFF On Saturday Night Live! Watch His Outrageous Rant HERE!

kanyewest snl

Kanye West has beef with a lot of people but Drake ain’t one of them!

The Yeezus tour made a stop in Newark over the weekend and the preachy performer took 10 minutes to educate his audience on any bad blood between him and Drizzy.

According to Kanye, it’s nonexistent and TOTALLY made up by the media!

He sermonized the Prudential Center, saying:

"They always be trying to pit n*ggas against each other and that ain't going down no more. We love Drake. We love every motherf*cker that puts their heart into this motherf*cking music. If anything, we gonna go after the motherf*ckers writing that negativity!”

Drake was under fire last week after allegedly spouting off about being kicked off the cover of Rolling Stone by the late actor Philip Seymour Hoffman. Critical comments he made about West’s album Yeezus also made it into the interview, which Drake claims he made outside of the “interview portion” of his conversation with the magazine.

So Kanye has Drake’s back and is going after anyone, “writing negativity.”

And just moments after making those comments, Ye went to work on going after those mother*ckers!

First up on his sh*tlist -
