Larry David Heckled Donald Trump On Saturday Night Live, Earns $5,000
Larry David can collect $5,000 for calling Donald Trump a racist during his Saturday Night Live monologue.
Larry David’s $5,000
David’s voice could be heard shouting, “Trump’s a racist!” as the real estate mogul and reality TV star-turned-GOP presidential candidate finished his monologue Saturday night. When Trump asked David why he was shouting, the camera panned to the comedian, who admitted, “I heard if I did that, they’d give me $5,000.”
The “they” David was referring to is advocacy group Deport Racism. Last week, the group released a statement claiming that they would give $5,000 to anyone who would shout out “Trump’s a racist” during the live sketch show.
“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,’” Santiago Cejudo, an organizer for the Deport Racism PAC, said on Wednesday.
Following the show over the weekend, the group tweeted that they planned to make good on their promise. “#LarryDavid wins $5K ‘bounty’ from https://DeportRacism.com for calling Trump RACIST on #SNL. Joke or not, it’s true,” the group tweeted.
