Salma Hayek Responds to Donald Trump’s Controversial Comments About Mexican Immigrants

by The Insider 1:44 mins

Donald Trump made headlines in June for his controversial remarks about Mexican immigrants, and now Salma Hayek is speaking out against the mogul and his statements. While promoting her new animated flick “The Prophet,” the Mexico-born star told E! that she refused to utter Trump’s name, but she revealed to “Entertainment Tonight” how she felt about what he said. “We have a big problem,” she said. “ I think that this is the big elephant in the room. Because there were many years where people were saying, ‘Oh. Racism is over in America.’ And ‘America is very inclusive.’ And I think in the last couple of years, more and more, we’re realizing that that is a lie and that this is a very big problem that we need to deal with.” Back in June the actress tweeted about the issue, writing, “I am heart broken by the hate and racism this beautiful country, that stands for freedom, has still not been able to overcome.” But she isn’t the only star speaking out. Check out the video to hear what other stars have had to say, and tune in to “The Insider With Yahoo” on TV tonight for the latest in entertainment news.
