NBC May Follow Univision And Drop Miss Universe! Has Donald Trump Made Another Enemy?

no title

Things might not be looking so good for Donald Trump.

On Thursday, Univision announced they were pulling the plug on the upcoming Miss USA pageant — and cutting ties with the entire Trump co-owned Miss Universe Organization — because of the billionaire's racist comments during his presidential bid speech!

Now, NBC is reportedly evaluating whether or not they want to follow suit and drop the pageant from their broadcast as well!

The Miss Universe Organization puts on the Miss USA, Miss Teen USA and Miss Universe pageants, which have aired on NBC and Univision for the past 12 years!

But sources say that NBC lawyers are currently meeting with lawyers from Univision, which is already tied up in a legal mess with the 69-year-old.

As we reported earlier, Trump is planning on suing Univision for breaking their alleged 5 year contract to air the pageant, which is set to broadcast from Baton Rouge on July 12.

If NBC pulls the plug as well, The Donald's attorneys are going to have a lot of work on their hands!

Do YOU think NBC will drop out of the Miss USA pageant?

Some hoped that this would cause the Apprentice star to apologize for his comments and find a way to mend the relationship between him and the network — and with Latinos!

On Wednesday, Latino artist J Balvin cancelled his Miss USA performance after Donald Trump's anti-Mexico rant during his presidential candidacy announcement last week.

Now the racist speech — in which Trump explained he wanted to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico and make Mexico pay for it — has caused even more fires for the Apprentice star.

It's not all bad news for host Mario Kreutzberger, known to audiences as Don Francisco. Though the 74-year-old plans to announce his departure during Saturday's show, he will stay with the network to work on talent development and occasionally host entertainment specials like TeletónUSA.

Univision declined to comment on why they made the decision to cancel the show that's been on air for over half a century.

We are so sad to say goodbye to this classic variety show that has provided generations with wacky television!
