It’s a downward spiral for Donald Trump‘s business relationship with Univision, and now NBC Universal. Just last week, Univision announced that they would no longer air the Miss USA Pageant, due to the 2016 presidential candidate’s comments about Mexicans in his announcement speech. Today, the mother-company, NBC has also severed their ties.

In a statement, NBC wrote:

“At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values. Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump. To that end, the annual Miss USA and Miss Universe Pageants, which are part of a joint venture between NBC and Trump, will no longer air on NBC . In addition, as Mr. Trump has already indicated, he will not be participating in “The Apprentice” on NBC. “Celebrity Apprentice” is licensed from Mark Burnett’s United Artists Media Group and that relationship will continue.”
