Donald Trump's Miss USA Pageant Will Take Place as Planned – Without NBC and Cheryl Burke

Originally posted 06/30/2015 12:20PM

The show must go on.

The Miss USA Pageant will take place as planned in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on July 12 despite NBC's decision not to air the competition following Donald Trump's controversial comments about Mexicans. There's no word on what network, if any, will air the beauty queen competition.

"The Miss Universe Organization is built on a foundation of inclusion and continues to be a celebration of diversity and of all cultures," the group said in a statement Tuesday. "This year's Miss USA contestants represent many different ethnic backgrounds, including six Latinas (four of whom are of Mexican descent)."

Trump, who co-owns the pageant, is facing backlash after he outlined his immigration stance while announcing his bid for president.

When Donald Trump announced his bid for president, he made a number of inflammatory comments about Latin-American immigrants to the United States.

"When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best," Trump, 69, announced to a crowd of press and likeminded supporters on the steps of Trump Tower on June 16. "They're not sending you. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."
