A Hispanic advocacy group is offering $5,000 to any audience member who calls GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump a “racist” on-air when he hosts the upcoming episode of “Saturday Night Live.”
“NBC’s refusal to drop Trump has put us in the position of dropping $5,000 of cold hard cash to anyone who will yell out ‘Trump is a racist’ during the live broadcast of ‘Saturday Night Live,’ said Santiago Cejudo, an organizer for the Deport Racism PAC, on Wednesday.
“We’re hoping the $5,000 will help people on set or in the studio audience find the bravery to speak out loudly and help focus the national conversation on that we need to deport racism, not people,” he added.
“It’s 2016, and Trump needs to hear that you can’t win the White House without the brown vote.”
Trump is slated to host “Saturday Night Live” on Nov. 7.
Deport Racism also released a profanity-laden video on Wednesday, spoofing Trump’s sharp rhetoric on illegal immigration.
The clip features two Hispanic children–“Ricardo” and “Rosa”–cursing the outspoken billionaire’s deportation policies.
“F**k you, [you] racist f**k,” Ricardo says to Trump. “If you don’t like the Constitution and what it stands for, then get the f**k out of my country.”
The Congressional Hispanic Caucus said Monday that it opposes NBC’s invite and called on the network to drop Trump.
