Gawker has done the work of putting the list together.

Miss USA Performer J Balvin
Date of Break-up: June 24

Announcement: “This isn’t about being punitive,” Balvin told Billboard, “but about showing leadership through social responsibility. His comments weren’t just about Mexicans, but about all Latins in general.”

Date of Break-up: June 25

Announcement: “We see first-hand the work ethic, love for family, strong religious values and the important role Mexican immigrants and Mexican-Americans have had and will continue to have in building the future of our country. We will not be airing the Miss USA pageant on July 12th or working on any other projects tied to the Trump Organization.”

Trump’s Response: “Under the contract, Univision is required to broadcast the [Miss USA] pageant live on television in Spanish,” said Trump in a statement. “While Univision claims its decision came solely in response to comments by Mr. Trump during a June 16, 2015 campaign speech announcing his candidacy for President of the United States, the decision was, in reality, a politically motivated attempt to suppress Mr. Trump’s freedom of speech under the First Amendment.”

Miss USA Co-host Roselyn Sanchez
Date of Break-up: June 25

Announcement: “I was very excited and proud to have been invited to participate in Miss USA, but as a Latina, that is now inconceivable,” said Sanchez in a statement. “Although I am not Mexican, I am Puerto Rican and a proud Latina, and his comments were an insult to our culture. I won’t sponsor anything produced by Donald Trump.”…

TV Production Studio Ora TV
Date of Break-up: June 30

Announcement: “[W]orking with such a closed-minded person would simply not work. Trump’s comments are racist,” Ora TV chairman Arturo Elías Ayub told Forbes. “At Grupo Carso, we are 100% inclusive, we respect all people, we respect all sexes, races, religions and nationalities. Trump does not think this way. It is difficult to work with a person that does not share our values.”…

Marcus Lemonis, CEO of NASCAR Sponsor Camping World
Date of Break-Up: July 3

Announcement: “My company, Camping World/Good Sam, has enjoyed a long running relationship with NASCAR as I believe the vision of our companies both embody family, respect, unity, comradery and diversity. These sentiments are at the core of what our country stands for and will continue to embrace.

Last year, our NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Awards Ceremony was held at the Trump National Doral in Miami, and due to recent and ongoing blatantly bigoted and racist comments from Donald Trump in regards to immigrants of the United States, I would like to inform you that I will not, nor will any representative of Camping World, participate or attend in the ceremonial event if it is held at any Trump property.

Our company will not stand to support any person or organization that associates with such beliefs and we feel strongly about distancing ourselves from any negative and discriminatory comments made against any gender, ethnicity, age group or so forth. I would hope that the entire NASCAR organization would agree with my sentiments.

Here’s the complete list.
