"After further review we recognize the insensitive nature of the ad and have chose to cease airing it across our properties as soon as possible", said an NBC spokesman, Joe Benarroch. The ad drew a comparison between Bracamontes and the thousands of migrants who are now fleeing Central America and making their way to the United States-Mexico border (aka the "caravan").
After reviewing the ad, NBC said it recognizes its insensitive nature. He made no mention of Fox News's decision.

CNN had previously determined that the Trump campaign's advertisement was racist and declined to sell airtime for it.
President Donald Trump and his Republican supporters have been widely criticized for a blatantly racist depicting Central American refugees as violent criminals-and the ad is so offensive that even Fox News is no longer running it. "While the video is allowed to be posted on Facebook, it can not receive paid distribution", a Facebook's spokesperson said in a statement to CNET.
Before the ad aired, Trump had blamed Democrats for the 7,000-strong caravan.
