Romeo Santos Became The Latest Latino Star To Take Aim At Donald Trump For His Ill-advised Remarks About Mexicans In America, When The Singer Blasted The Real Estate Mogul At A Gig In New York On Friday (10jul15).
The Bachata King and New York native headlined three concerts at Brooklyn's Barclays Center over the weekend (ends12Jul15), and on Friday, he had some choice words for reality TV star Trump, who is running as a Republican candidate in the U.S. presidential election.
Announcing his bid last month (Jun15), Trump alleged many Mexicans who have settled in the U.S. are "rapists" who bring drugs and crime to America, and his comments prompted controversy and backlash from the Latino community.
And during Santos' concert, he fired off at the presidential candidate, yelling, "F**k Donald Trump!", much to the approval of the nearly 18,000 fans in attendance.
Santos, a New York-born, half-Dominican, half-Puerto Rican singer, added, "You got a problem with Mexicans, but they built your f**king buildings, motherf**ker."
Others to comment on Trump's anti-Mexican remarks include Ricky Martin, America Ferrera and Eva Longoria, while J Balvin pulled out of an appearance at the businessman's Miss USA pageant.
