Salma Hayek Refuses To Say Donald Trump’s Name [VIDEO].

Mexican-American actress Salma Hayek may not have talked about Donald Trump when she was on Allure‘s cover this month, but that doesn’t mean she has nothing to say about his anti-Mexican comments — you just won’t hear her saying his name! Salma Hayek has shot back at Donald Trump, following remarks the business mogul made about Mexican immigrants in his presidential campaign announcement last month. “I’m not insulted because I cannot be insulted by stupidity,” the Mexican actress said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.“I’m aware that he would say anything to attract attention and create the publicity around him,” Hayek said. “If something generates publicity, I would never be surprised about anything he does.

Step aside Voldemort, there is another person Salma Hayek will be calling “He-Who-Shall-No-Be-Named” – and it’s presidential candidate Donald Trump.Salma Hayek wouldn’t even say the word “Trump” when asked how she felt after the GOP presidential hopeful assailed Mexican immigrants as “rapists” flowing across the border. “Because I know him a little bit, it’s a mistake to respond because he will use this to promote himself,” Hayek told The News’ Ethan Sacks about the Republican front-runner. “The Mexican community may be upset that I wasn’t saying something … but I refuse to utter his name and allow him to use me for self-promotion.” Expectations were high because Hayek is the highest-profile star of Mexican descent in Hollywood, and known as a foe of discrimination against immigrants.

Trump was blasted after saying that Mexico was “sending people that have lots of problems” to America. “They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime. The movie is about freedom and the animation gave us the freedom to be more faithful to the theme of the film.” The messages of peace, love and brotherhood contained within the text have been brought to life by nine of the world’s leading independent animators and directed by Roger Allers.

Besides, she sees a silver lining in how Donald Trump’s comments underscore the prejudice immigrants face. “We have not, as Americans, grasped the level, the size, of the problem of discrimination in this country,” she says. “We have been living a lie, pretending we’re a country that no longer discriminates.” Hayek seemed to reference Trump’s ownership of the Miss Universe pageant and his “Apprentice” role on NBC, noting, “America is not a beauty pageant. She brought so much energy to it, and since many of the scenes are about a mother and daughter, she brought her own sensitivities as a mother of a young daughter.”

We have something to learn from this,” Hayek said. “That is that the educated people or the people with great human values have to wake up, because they are under the illusion that most of this country is like them and sometimes they don’t even go to vote.” Although Hayek will comment on Trump, she won’t say his name: She told E! And some, I assume, are good people.” In July he doubled down on the statement, saying in a press release, “What can be simpler or more accurately stated?
