On an unaired transcript of The Celebrity Apprentice, Donald Trump said that a singer’s skin “sucks”. The transcript is from an episode called “Beauty and Brains” dating from 2010, The Huffington Post reports.
Not that this would be the first insults that Trump has ever said to or about someone! It’s not even the first time he’s been proven to insult women – nothing can compare to his “locker room talk” with Access Hollywood show host Billy Bush, that was recently made public and has horrified America. But it is, nevertheless, a highly offensive comment, the one made on a transcript obtained by The Huffington Post.
The transcript is that of an episode called “Beauty and Brains” on The Celebrity Apprentice 2010 season, during which two celebrity teams had to give two country music starts a makeover: one was Luke Bryan, the other was Emily West. When deliberating which team was going to be declared the winner, Trump brought into discussion several times, West’s skin.
“I assume you’re gonna leave this off, don’t put this shit on the show,” he said at one point, adding that the singer’s skin “sucks, okay?” Then continued: “She needs some serious f****** dermatology.”
Later on, he said about Luke Bryan that he looked better to him than Emily West: “Personally, I am, as you probably heard, not a gay man, but I think he’s better looking than Emily, okay?”
Pop singer Cindy Lauper, who was on the team managing West’s appearance, made a harsh comment following Trump’s rant. “Of all people to talk about people’s skin! What the hell is going on with his?” Lauper called Trump “very disappointing” and blamed him for dragging the entire political system down “that is so 1800 gangs of New York”.
Neither a representative for Donald Trump, nor one for Apprentice producer Mark Burnett have commented on the matter up to the present moment.
