NBC pulls Trump's anti-immigration ad after SNF airing

NBC pulls Trump's anti-immigration ad after SNF airing

The 30-second video urges viewers to "vote Republican" before Donald Trump says he approves the message.

Actually, Bracamontes last entered the country while George W. Bush was president, and Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio released him after his last arrest.

NBC faced immediate backlash with some of its top talent, including film director Judd Apatow and "Will and Grace" star Debra Messing, bashing the decision on social media.

Along with the NBC broadcast network, NBCUniversal allowed the ad to air multiple times on MSNBC before Monday's decision was made.

"After further review we recognize the insensitive nature of the ad and have chose to cease airing it across our properties as soon as possible", said an NBC spokesman, Joe Benarroch.

Fox issued a similar statement without any specific criticism of the ad's content.

Jones remarked that "we've been punched numb" on Trump's rhetoric already, but Fox News still decided in the end that it went too far.

Fox News, the U.S. president's favorite television network and often considered favorable to his administration, confirmed to AFP that it had removed the ad and that it would no longer appear on either its news or Fox Business channels. CNN had rejected the same ad, declaring it racist.

Facebook is blocking the ad from being promoted through its paid distribution network, according to reports.

Fox News, Fox Business and NBC said earlier Monday they would stop airing the ad, which was widely condemned as racist after NBC ran it during an NFL Sunday Night Football game. I mean you're telling me something I don't know about.

The controversial ad contrasts video of Luis Bracamontes, an illegal immigrant who gunned down two police officers in 2014, with the approaching migrant caravan from Honduras and quotes from someone within that caravan saying they have prior felonies.

That Trump Jr. and Parscale would call out networks for not airing a demonstrably false ad as proof that said networks purposely air fake news is, uh, a weird attempt at an indictment.

Trump was unconcerned by the ad's removal, calling it "effective" and dismissing the networks' concerns.

Fox News was not immediately reachable for further comment.
