The protesters said Trump’s appearance on Saturday Night Live was a slap in the face to Hispanic Americans.
The Huffington Post reported:
As Donald Trump prepared for his big “Saturday Night Live” appearance, Latino activists and supporters gathered outside the NBC studios and protested the network’s decision to feature a man who has called Mexican immigrants “rapists.”
“Allowing Trump to host ‘Saturday Night Live,’ a storied comedy show, is nothing short of a slap in the face to the more than 57 million Latinos living in the U.S., whose only wish is to work hard, provide for their families and live the American dream,” said Brent Wilkes, the national executive director of the League of United Latin American Citizens, which organized the protest.
