President Donald Trump and his Republican supporters have been widely criticized for a blatantly racist depicting Central American refugees as violent criminals-and the ad is so offensive that even Fox News is no longer running it.
"A lot of things are offensive", he told reporters before departing for a series of campaign rallies. "Your questions are offensive a lot of the time", he said. Both NBC and Fox News joined CNN in refusing to run a Trump controversial campaign advertisement.
Many viewers were stunned when it aired during "Sunday Night Football", which is one of the most watched programs on television, regularly averaging more than 10 million viewers.
MSNBC also aired it on "Morning Joe" on Monday. He's seen smiling in a court appearance and saying, "I will break out soon and I will kill more". Text over the video reads "Democrats let him into our country", and "Democrats let him stay".
An NBC source said the ad was cleared by the broadcast network's standards and practices team.
"After further review we recognize the insensitive nature of the ad and have made a decision to cease airing it across our properties as soon as possible", NBC Universal said in a statement.
Fox pulled the ad Sunday "upon further review", said Marianne Gambelli, president of the network's ad sales department.
"I want you to know that I am ashamed that my network aired this disgusting racist ad", Messing wrote in a tweet addressed to Will and Grace fans.
Facebook is still allowing its members to post the ad in their news feeds, however.
The tweet ended with an emoji of an apple, an apparent reference to CNN's own ad campaign where it compares inaccurate news coverage to someone insisting that a banana is an apple.
Fox News did not explain why it pulled the ad. I guess they only run fake news and won't talk about real threats that don't suit their agenda.
Facebook's decision to remove the ad only came after CNN, NBC and Fox News all made the decision to pull it from their airwaves.
