 Due To Him Referring Immigrants From Mexico As "Killers And Rapist"
BHR Hollywood Reports...........Macy's is pulling Donald Trump brand merchandise from its stores after the Republican presidential candidate's recent controversial remarks created a public uproar.

The department store has come under intense pressure to cut ties with the real estate magnate and businessman after he referred to immigrants from  Mexico and other countries “killers and rapists.”

In a statement Wednesday morning, Macy’s said the company “stands for diversity” and that it had no tolerance for discrimination.

“We are disappointed and distressed by recent remarks about immigrants from Mexico.

We do not believe the disparaging characterizations portray an accurate picture of the many Mexicans, Mexican Americans and Latinos who have made so many valuable contributions to the success of our nation,” Macy’s said.

“In light of statements made by Donald Trump, which are inconsistent with Macy’s values, we have decided to discontinue our business relationship with Mr. Trump and will phase-out the Trump menswear collection, which has been sold at Macy’s since 2004.”

Macy's carries a variety of Donald Trump brand attire, including dress shirts, neckties and cuff links. Trump has also appeared in Macy's commercials.

“Donald Trump does not reflect ‘the magic of Macy’s,'” the petition reads. “Macy’s says it has a strong obligation to be ‘socially responsible’ and that ‘actions speak louder than words.’ Indeed. It’s time to act.”

Angelo Carusone, who started the “Dump Trump” movement in 2012 to protest Trump’s “birther” theories about President Barack Obama and launched the Macy’s petition, lauded the department store for making the “right decision.”

“The statement itself (from Macy’s) basically confirms what we’ve been saying since day one: His brand, which is bigoted bullying, is inconsistent with Macy’s brand,” Carusone, the executive vice president of Media Matters, told Reports.

 “There’s a line between being very opinionated and expressing yourself and communicating that and being reckless and destructive.”

Macy’s denied Trump’s claim that it was the retailer’s decision to sever ties.
