A rally outside Rockefeller Center on Wednesday night to protest leading GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump's upcoming appearance on "Saturday Night Live" delivered a box of signatures to the TV studio.

Holding up a box that read "522,080 petition signatures demanding that NBC revoke Trump's invitation to host 'Saturday Night Live,'" the protestors rebuked the real estate magnate for his controversial comments about immigration and Latinos.

Coalition members who organized the rally accused the comedy show and NBC of hypocrisy after the network cut business ties with Trump earlier this year before announcing his turn as host on Nov. 7.


One of the organizing groups, the National Hispanic Media Coalition, also delivered a letter to NBC executives signed by 24 Latino leaders that said they "should not be in the business of giving acceptance and legitimacy to the views of a racist extremist."

On Tuesday night, Trump retweeted a comment that included a picture depicting rival Jeb Bush next to a Nazi flag and swastika and read, "ADIOS, JEB aka JOSÉ."

In his campaign launch, Trump said Mexico was "sending people that have lots of problems" across the border.

"They’re bringing drugs," Trump said. "They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."
