“Somebody” Singer Natalie La Rose Drops Miss USA Performance Amid Controversy

Hey Donald, YOU'RE FIRED!

Donald Trump continues to feel the backlash after his offensive comments towards Mexicans and Latinos.

"Somebody" hit-maker Natalie La Rose has pulled out as a performer at Trump's upcoming Miss USA pageant. The rising R&B/Pop singer-songwriter joins a growing list of people and organizations, who want to stay far from Trump, including co-hosts Cheryl Burke and Roselyn Sanchez, Colombian performer J Balvin, MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts, and networks Univision and NBC.

While making his announcement that he would be running for president, Trump made the racist comments about Mexicans and Latinos. "[Mexico is] sending people that have lots of problems, and they are bringing those problems to us. They are bringing drugs, and bringing crime, and their rapists," Trump declared.

The Miss USA event is supposed to take place on July 12 in Baton Rouge, LA, but it won't air in Spanish on Univision or in English on NBC, as both networks have cut ties with the event.

Rapper Flo Rida, who discovered La Rose, as yet to confirm if he will back out or perform at the pageant.
