donald trumpJ Balvin is taking a stance! The Colombian artist has officially decided to quit his performance in the upcoming Miss USA pageant due to Donald Trump's controversial anti-immigration speech. The billionaire is part owner of the national organization, which means this is really kicking him where it hurts! Univision also announced that it was ending its partnership with the Miss Universe pageant, which is co-owned by Trump. This is huge coming from a network! 

J Balvin and Univision's decision is exactly what I was hoping more Latino celebrities and media brands would do--especially since Ximena Navarrete came to his defense and only a handful of Latino stars have stood up against Trump's ignorant speech. J Balvin may be starting an anti-Donald Trump movement and I'm all about it! Find out what Balvin had to say about Trump's racist speech and which other celebrities have stood up against the presidential candidate.

Balvin explained to Billboard that he couldn’t go through with the performance and have a clear conscience about it. Bravo! He explained, “Mexicans, they're known as hard workers. Here in the U.S., not everybody wants to do those kinds of jobs. I’ve lived. I know what it feels like and what they go through and how families suffer. A comment like that is powerful," he said.

The Chilean actor also joined Balvin and turned down the opportunity to work as a host in the upcoming Miss USA competition. "As a Latino, I cannot work in an event associated with your name," he said in a video with Trump tagged on Twitter. Take that, Trump!

The Mexican comedian didn't see the humor in Trump's hate speech against Mexicans. In an interview for Fórmula, he said, "His comments are totally racist and I'm sure that the day Mexicans, or Latinos in general, leave the U.S. this country will stop. Latinos are the strongest moving force in the U.S."

The Mexican journalist wrote a piece for Fusion calling Trump out on his controversial speech. In the article, Ramos writes, "Trump's characterization of undocumented immigrants is, of course, absurd. Not only do the facts, well, trump his assertions, but his prejudiced views demonstrate a deep ignorance about Mexican immigrants in the United States."
