On season 13 of ‘Celebrity Apprentice,’ it is reported that Donald Trump had another phrase aside from “You’re Fired,” that proved to be memorable for cast and crew.
In an episode where contestants were tasked with creating enticing displays for hair care products, rapper Lil Jon embraced an Uncle Sam costume to give his team a leg up. Trump then in return decided to jokingly embrace the term “Uncle Tom,” and referred to Lil Jon as such repeatedly.
Staffers of the show encouraged Trump to not use the insulting term, “used to deride a black man deemed to be subservient to white people,” but Trump replied, “No, that’s a saying, it’s Uncle Tom.” Apparently, “he just couldn’t grasp that it was offensive… When [Trump] decides he wants to do something, that’s his way.”
Lil Jon confirmed via Twitter that It wasn’t until he and fellow cast members clarified the terms’ offensiveness, that Trump ceased its usage.

The “Turn Down For What” rapper also made it known that although Trump heeded his request, he still does not agree with many of the comments that the presidential candidate has made during his campaign. Many of which were equally, if not more offensive.
At this point, if we didn’t receive our daily derogatory Trump comment, something just wouldn’t be right with the universe.
