NBC said on Monday morning that it will no longer air an immigration ad from President Donald Trump, widely derided as racially divisive, that aired during the network's NFL coverage on Sunday night.
"After further review, we recognize the insensitive nature of the ad and have decided to cease airing it across our properties as soon as possible," said Joe Benarroch, a spokesperson for NBC's advertising sales department.
NBC came under fire for airing the commercial during its Sunday NFL coverage of a game between the New England Patriots and the Green Bay Packers.
The ad aired 18 times across multiple networks. It also aired on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Monday morning.
CNN had declined to air the commercial.

#1 SHOW ON TV
SCORE WAS TIED 17-17 at the time...max viewership
More people have already seen it than if it ran on CNN every day for 6 months! And it only cost Brad Parscale $650k!
CBS ran an Ad from Bloomberg last night.
He’s Voting “Democratic” because of Trump, or something.
I don’t get it. What’s wrong with that ad?
They recognize the effectiveness of the ad, and have therefore decided not to run it anymore. Because the DNC gave them their instructions.
It is effective.
whats wrong with ad? it hurts Dems
I did not think the networks could pick and chose political commercials unless they contained obvious lies. This seems like a slippery slope.
Its to effective.
If it’s a political ad I don’t believe they are allowed to do this.
The TRUTH is anathema to the enemdia.
So, NBC has pulled all Negative ads targeting GOP candidates, that contain provable lies?
Too much truth for the Ministry of Propaganda
And the Left is always first to whine about censorship.
So NBC gets to decide what a candidate can say?
Must be why they have no viewers anymore
TOO LATE. :-p
The ad is now available on Trump's Twitter feed and Facebook feed.
Is it more offensive then pushing granny off the cliff, or how about dragging a black guy behind a truck? Seems the FCC should take a look at this.
Wow, that Twitter Thread is full of Moonbat Leftists who are obviously offended by the truth.
To the Left this Election has nothing to do with how the Country is doing under Republican Leadership, it’s only their opportunity to make a statement, they hate POTUS Trump “because”.
The Bolshies don’t much care for it
Censorship pure and simple. NBC has no problem running highly negative ads against Republicans but falsely claim some sort of “high ground” when they don’t like an ad negative to Dems. This is another example of why much of the media is the enemy of the American people - they do not put out the news and let the American people think and decide for themselves. Instead, they censor that with which they disagree and push that with which they agree while at the same time claiming they are unbiased. That is detrimental to our nation and our form of government and that is why they are the enemy — even though idiot Romney doesn’t agree.
