NBC has had it with Donald Trump.\

The move follows a week of mounting pressure from viewers over Trump’s recent comments regarding illegal immigration from Mexico, where he suggested that immigrants largely consist of criminals. A petition calling for NBC to sever its relationship with Trump was up to 20,000 signatures as of Sunday.

NBC Universal released this statement Monday:

“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 Celebrity Apprentice on NBC. Celebrity Apprentice is licensed from Mark Burnett’s United Artists Media Group and that relationship will continue.”
