    The Message

    Saturday Night Live Executive Producer Lorne Michaels, and NBC Entertainment President Robert Greenblatt:

    Donald Trump’s rhetoric is not only offensive and racist – it is dangerous, and has already led to violence against Latinos several times. By allowing Trump to host Saturday Night Live, you are validating this inflammatory rhetoric as acceptable mainstream discourse. SNL’s irresponsible decision to feature Trump confirms how little regard the show has for Latino viewers. In SNL’s entire history, it has only hired two Latino cast members, and has never hired a Latina cast member. We are calling on you to immediately cancel Donald Trump’s appearance on SNL and commit to hiring Latino cast members and writers as soon as possible.

    Saturday Night Live’s decision to invite Donald Trump to host the show is outrageous and irresponsible. Trump’s rhetoric is not only offensive and racist – it is dangerous, and has already led to violence against Latinos several times. By featuring Trump, SNL is validating this rhetoric as acceptable mainstream discourse. At the same time, SNL has no Latino cast members, has hired only two Latino cast members in its entire history, and has never hired a Latina cast member. Join us in demanding that SNL cancel Trump’s appearance and commit to hiring Latino cast members and writers as soon as possible.
