Donald Trump hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend has drawn sharp criticism from Latino lawmakers and immigration groups, prompted online petitions and even triggered small protests this week in New York.

Increasingly, Latino celebrities are weighing in on the show’s decision. Here’s what they’re saying:

In an interview with Yahoo! News Live this week, the Colombia-born actor and producer made it clear he won‚Äôt be watching the show on Saturday or ever again. ‚ÄúI‚Äôm all for freedom of speech, but this is different,‚ÄĚ he said. ‚ÄúHe‚Äôs not doing it politically ‚Ķ This is celebrating somebody who, if he‚Äôd said those things about any other ethnic group, he would not be on SNL.‚ÄĚ

Leguizamo added, ‚ÄúI find it hurtful and insulting, and you‚Äôre celebrating someone who has said some horrible things. I find it unacceptable, I will not watch SNL anymore.‚ÄĚ

The comedian has used a biting comedy skit to rip SNL‚Äôs decision. In a video posted on the Funny or Die website, Lopez portrays a ‚ÄúMexican Donald Trump‚ÄĚ who hosts a fictional show called Noche de Sabado en Vivo, Spanish for Saturday Night Live. He plays ‚ÄúHumpty Dumpty Trumpty‚ÄĚ in the skit and the character sports a red ‚ÄúMake Mexico Great Again‚ÄĚ hat, a satirical take on Trump‚Äôs signature ‚ÄúMake America Great Again‚ÄĚ slogan.

The actress and political activist says people should simply not watch Saturday’s show.

‚ÄúWe as a Hispanic community have a choice not to watch it,‚ÄĚ she recently told The Wrap. ‚ÄúThat‚Äôs our choice. That‚Äôs what we can do. That‚Äôs what you‚Äôre supposed to do. Boycott that night, and then let that show feel that ‚Äėoh, OK we did make a bad decision.‚Äô‚ÄĚ

‚ÄúThis is part of freedom of speech, freedom of press. [Trump] has his right ‚ÄĒ not only that, [SNL executive producer[ Lorne Michaels has a right to book whoever he wants.‚ÄĚ

Diaz, Gonzalez Inarriuto and dozens of other Latino intellectuals, artists, authors and scientists released a letter this week heavily criticizing Trump. Although it didn’t directly address SNL, it came just days before Trump was scheduled to host the show, and amid growing calls for NBC to revoke his invitation.
