ICYMI: NBC Pulled Law & Order: SVU‘s Controversial Donald Trump-Themed Episode!

no title

It looks like NBC thinks they’ve done enough Donald Trump bashing for one month!

On Friday, the network announced it has pulled a politically charged episode of Law & Order: SVU that follows a scandal very similar to that of the Republican presidential candidate!

An NBC spokesperson said in a statement:

“The episode originally scheduled for October 26 has been postponed. It has not yet been assigned a new airdate.”

Last week, the network showed a first look at the episode called Unstoppable, where Gary Cole plays a rich politician whose campaign is rocked by several women coming forward with shocking accusations.

Hmm… sound familiar?

NBC didn’t say what caused the decision to postpone the SVU episode, but after the Access Hollywood tapes and Alec Baldwin‘s scathing Trump impression on Saturday Night Live, maybe the network feels obligated to give the candidate a break?

Either that, or they don’t want him to sue. Yeah, probably that…
