The 48-year old Mexican actress has been quite vocal on issues like human rights and politics. But she is hardly seen talking about Donald Trump. She is doing it on purpose.
Salma believes talking about Trump and uttering his name will give him “extra publicity”. It’s the thing he wants most right now and Salma is not going to do anything which helps him get more publicity.
“I’m aware that he would say anything to attract attention and create the publicity around him,” Salma Hayek told E! News. “If something generates publicity, I would never be surprised by anything he does.”
“I’d be surprised if he did something courageous and meaningful that nobody found out about,” Salma Hayek continued. “All this that he said I don’t repeat, and I don’t say his name because I don’t want to give him extra publicity.”
Still, Salma Hayek appreciates Donald Trump for highlighting a big issue like discrimination.
“I think it’s beginning to show that discrimination and racism in this country is a bigger problem than we accept it is. At least he brought a light into a real problem.” Salma said.
Donald Trump started out his presidential campaign blasting Mexican immigrants. He called them “rapists”, “drug dealers” and responsible of spreading crime in United States.
Pitbull, Shakira, and Cher were few to criticize Donald Trump for his anti-Mexican stance. Many of Trumps’ longtime business partners including Macy’s, NBC Universal and Univision cut their ties with him over his derogatory remarks.
