They're All Fired

He's not even there anymore:
The boycott is the work of the #GrabYourWallet campaign, which called on anti-Trump activists to boycott the companies who refused to pull their participation in the show. The #GrabYourWallet campaign is the same campaign used by anti-Trump activists against companies like Ivanka Trump’s fashion brand and outfitter L.L. Bean.

“I think it’s pretty clear at this point that the Trump brand name is toxic,” #GrabYourWallet organizer Shannon Coulter, a 45-year-old digital marketing specialist from San Francisco, told the Wrap.

NBC rebooted the Apprentice franchise earlier this year with new host Arnold Schwarzenegger after severing business ties with Trump in 2015 due to his presidential campaign.

Though Trump left the show, he still retains an executive producer credit and his name appears in the titles. In December, Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks said that the then-president-elect had a “stake” in the show because he co-created it with reality TV producer Mark Burnett.

A source close to the show told TMZ in December that Trump has no creative involvement in the reboot, and that the executive producer credit was purely a title. Schwarzenegger defended Trump’s credit in an interview the same month, explaining that he still received royalties from his Terminator films after becoming governor of California.
The stupidity must be Terminated...
