New York – A Latino advocacy organization is offering a $5,000 reward to anyone who disrupts this week's Saturday Night Live episode, featuring Donald Trump as host, by yelling "Trump is a racist" or "Deport racism."
The Trump bounty was announced Wednesday by DeportRacism.com, a Democrat political action committee (PAC) dedicated to fighting anti-Latino and anti-immigrant rhetoric.
"We’re hoping the $5,000 will help people on set or in the studio audience find the bravery to speak out loudly and help focus the national conversation on that we need to deport racism, not people," said Santiago Cejudo, an organizer with the group, in a press release. "It’s 2016, and Trump needs to hear that you can’t win the White House without the brown vote.”
The offer comes on the heels of mounting pressure from 40 of the nation's largest Latino organizations who are demanding NBCUniversal and SNL disinvite Trump from hosting the iconic comedy show on Saturday. A protest was planned for Wednesday night outside NBCUniversal headquarters in New York City.
NBC and SNL have not met with any of the Latino organizations about their outrage over SNL allowing Trump to host after he said a lot of Mexican immigrants to the U.S. are "rapists," "drug dealers" and "anchor babies."
The bounty also comes a day after the PAC released a shocking video entitled "Trashing Trump: Latino Kids Pound Racism Like a Pinata." In the 2 minute YouTube video, Latino children denounce Trump in a profanity laced tirade.
"F*** you racist f***," one child says to Trump while holding up a middle finger. Two children go on to say: "Yo, Trump. You may be high in the polls. Thanks to pinches racist suckers but you're all going to have to come thru me. If you try to deport my abuelita m*****f*****."

The director of the video, Luke Montgomery, defends the work saying "the adorable and articulate Latino kids in the video fight back with some comedically offensive language of their own, F-bombing Trump’s racism. They are using bad words for a good cause.”
Falling short of endorsing the video, Felix Sanchez, founder and chairman of the National Hispanic Federation of the Arts, says he's not surprised by the $5,000 bounty.
"We don’t have an opinion about this," he told Fox News Latino but, "when you bring someone as controversial as him of course they should expect that some people in the audience would respond to him being there."
