Larry David calls Donald Trump a ‘racist’ during SNL monologue joke.

DeportRacism.com, a pro-Latino political action committee, promised to award $5,000 to anyone who shouted that Republican presidential candidate and “Saturday Night Live” host Donald Trump is a racist during the live comedy program — and they’re going to make good on their promise.

Comedian Larry David had a few cameos during “SNL,” most notably to play Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders during the show’s opening sketch. Trump didn’t appear in the episode’s cold open, a sketch built around the South Carolina Democratic forum (David, once again, played Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders). Trump’s appearance as host of SNL was met with protests from several Latino groups, including The Hispanic Federation, the Labor Council for Latin American Advancement (LCLAA), and the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC).

According to Luke Montgomery, DeportRacism.com’s campaign director, the political group still has every intention of awarding the bounty despite it being written into the show. “We are excited to reward Larry David with $5,000 cash for ‘standing up’ to Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live and speaking the truth about his anti-Latino racism, even though he was joking. There’s nothing funny about calling Mexican immigrants rapists, murderers and drug dealers,” Montgomery told TheBlaze in a statement Sunday morning. “You could never get away with saying that about African Americans, so why is it OK to say it about Latinos?” Montgomery told TheBlaze that his group will contact David’s people on Monday to discuss the transfer of the funds as well as a box of the organization’s shirts. “And we’re going to be going to the next GOP debate and offering the $5,000 bounty there for anyone who stands up and yells, ‘Trump is a racist’ and disrupts the live broadcast of the GOP debate,” Montgomery said. “It worked the first time in a very funny and interesting way, and we’re going to do it again.” Protesters involved with DeportRacism.com and other Latino organizations who demonstrated against NBC’s decision to allow Trump to host the venerable comedy show were also briefly mentioned during “SNL’s” Weekend Update sketch. They’re sending people that have lots of problems,” Trump said when announcing his presidential candidacy this past summer. “They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime.
