Donald Trump is hot and heavy in the news again, all due to Trump’s scheduled SNL appearance. Previously, The Donald made the news when GMA journalist Lara Spencer was accused of sitting on Trump’s lap, as reported by the Inquisitr. It was a charge that Spencer vehemently denied after her Instagram photo went viral. Now it’s Trump’s upcoming SNL appearance that has people angry and even has one group offering $5,000 to anyone who will shout that Trump is racist, reports CNN.
There’s a plethora of controversy regarding The Donald showing up on SNL, with sites like ColorOfChange.org launching petitions to try and get NBC to cancel Trump’s guest host appearance on SNL on Saturday, November 7. It only took about 72 hours for 30,000 signatures against having SNL feature Trump, reports USA Today, to be collected on the petition. And ColorOfChange.org isn’t the only one wanting to do away with Trump on SNL.
An accidentally leaked promo of Trump calling Ben Carson a loser has surfaced online.
Now a Latino group named Deport Racism is offering up $5,000 to any person who will “disrupt Trump” on SNL.
“DI$RUPT TRUMP ON SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE: Win $5,000!”
The DeportRacism.com website has offered up their rules for winning the $5,000 to disrupt Trump.
“Make a statement against racism and make $5,000 cash!
NBC has invited Donald Trump to be the host of Saturday Night Live on November 7th despite outcry from the Latino community and supporters of equality that giving Trump a platform on the hit comedy show sends the wrong message that his offensive and racist comments about Latinos and Mexicans are acceptable.
DeportRacism.com is working with activists in New York to disrupt the live broadcast of the show to both hold NBC accountable and make a statement to the world that Trump’s racism has no place in the White House.
The DeportRacism.com Political Action Committee will pay $5,000 cash to anyone on the set of the show or in the studio audience who yells out or gets on camera during the live TV broadcast clearly heard in the TV broadcast saying “Deport Racism” or ‘Trump is a Racist.'”
The Trump on SNL controversy, as reported by MarketWatch, can be tracked to that leaked SNL promo of The Donald calling Carson a loser, as well as plenty of other controversial statements Trump has made about women and President Obama’s birth location.
Despite all the controversy — or perhaps because of the controversy — Hillary Clinton told Jimmy Kimmel she will watch Trump on SNL, reports Deadline. If NBC continues plans to have Trump on SNL on November 7, Clinton won’t be alone in watching the melee unfold. Due to the $5,000 “disrupt Trump” bounty, lots of others will likely watch Trump on SNL to see if anyone actually screams that Trump is a racist.
Trump’s SNL appearance will likely gather all sorts of views, even if NBC hasn’t yet commented on the $5,000 bounty being offered, nor the protesters that appeared outside of NBC headquarters on Wednesday to protest Trump on SNL. Security will likely be stepped up for Trump prior to appearing on SNL.
As reported by Heavy, a controversial video accompanied the “Deport Racism” message, which showed children cursing at Trump. Luke Montgomery is the guy who’s the brainchild behind the Deport Racism video. Luke’s group is also the one offering the $5,000 bounty for any “Trump is a racist!” screamers on SNL this weekend.
Meanwhile, the Republican presidential candidate has been busy pumping up his new book, Crippled America: How to Make America Great Again, even as Carson pulls ahead of Trump with 29 percent of Republican primary voters.
