Miss USA Pageant Will Strut on Despite Donald Trump's NBC Firing

Despite being dropped by NBC, the 2015 Miss USA pageant will still take place on July 12 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
On Monday, NBC cut ties with Donald Trump due to his inflammatory remarks about Mexican immigrants. As a result, the network also cut ties with the Miss Universe Organization, which puts on the Miss USA pageant. A Miss Universe Organization statement provided to Mashable said "We are disheartened by recent events, but the show will go on," The Miss Universe statement stressed that the organization is "built on a foundation of inclusion" and the pageant is "a celebration of diversity and of all cultures."
