Latino group offers $5K for calling Trump a racist on ‘SNL’

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.”

{mosads}“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.”

Trump’s invitation to host “Saturday Night Live” is drawing condemnation from many in the Latino community.

The Congressional Hispanic Caucus said Monday that it opposes NBC’s invite and called on the network to drop Trump.

“Mr. Trump’s racist remarks and his continued rhetoric demonizing Latinos and immigrants has created fear within these communities around the country, many of which are represented in Congress by members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus,” the 26-member group said in statement.

“[The] Congressional Hispanic Caucus urges NBCUniversal to stand by its earlier commitment to end its relationship with Mr. Trump because the values of ‘respect and dignity for all people’ are more important than ratings and ad revenues.”

NBC and other businesses severed ties with Trump this summer amid a backlash over his immigration rhetoric.

Trump has repeatedly dismissed criticism from Hispanic groups as political correctness run amok. He’s vowing that his “SNL” gig on Saturday will earn NBC record ratings for that time slot.
