Latino group offers $5K reward to hecklers who shout ‘Trump is a racist’ during SNL taping
A Latino political action committee is offering big bucks to any audience member bold enough to heckle GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump during his appearance on Saturday Night Live this week.
The Deport Racism PAC will give potential hecklers $5,000 cash for interrupting the billionaire real estate mogul by saying either, “Deport racism,” or “Trump is a racist” while he performs live on the sketch comedy show.
“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 group said in a statement.
Hecklers have to be identified by name in the media to collect the prize, and divide the money if more than one person plays along.
Latinos have expressed anger at NBC allowing Trump to host the show, saying he has made racist comments about Mexican people.
“This is a chance to turn Trump’s appearance on the show into a media story that addresses his racist comments against Latinos,” the group statement read.
Trump has said he would deport all the undocumented people living in the United States and build a giant wall at the U.S.-Mexico border, that he would make Mexico pay for. He also said early in his campaign that migrants from Mexico were criminals.
