NBC has folded after coming under fire for airing Trump’s ad during primetime. An ad CNN labeled “racist.”
The ad warns of criminal migrants coming to the U.S. and features footage of the migrant caravan making their way to the American border.
Several celebrities have slammed the video, including Hollywood producer Judd Apatow who said, “I am disgusted that you would air that after [CNN] refused to air because it is explicitly racist. Shame on you.”
It seems like Apatow’s tweet served as a call to action, as criticisms rained sown on the NBC network.
NBC has since declared the content as inappropriate and will cease running the ad.
