UPDATE: Donald Trump is putting Macy’s on blast. In addition to releasing an official statement via Instagram, the GOP presidential candidate took to Twitter to criticize the department store even more. Apparently, his beef with Macy’s isn’t so much about its decision to cut ties, but more so with its stance on border security. He’s now calling for a boycott.
Check out the tweets below.
Macy's is the latest company to cut ties with Donald Trump following his extremely controversial statements on immigration, reports WWD.
Macy's and Trump have released a clothing line together for the past 11 years, but that relationship ends today. "We have no tolerance for discrimination in any form," Macy's said in a statement in response to Trump's accusations that immigrants from Mexico were "rapists" that are solely "bringing drugs" and "bringing crime" to America. "We do not believe the disparaging characterizations portray an accurate picture of the many Mexicans, Mexican Americans and Latinos who have made so many valuable contributions to the success of our nation."
We say good riddance to the awful suits, ties, and shirts that were being sold as part of Donald Trump's line at Macy's. On his way out the door, Trump tried desperately to cling onto a single shred of dignity by claiming via an Instagram post he was severing ties because the products were made in China. A fact that the flailing presidential candidate caught shit for just a couple years ago after complaining about other companies employing this practice.
Macy's joins NBC, which will halt Trump's involvement in a number of projects, including Miss USA, Miss Universe, and Celebrity Apprentice. Both of these companies are giving Trump a taste of his own medicine.
