New York, April 28 (IANS) Indian-American comedian Aziz Ansari has blasted Donald Trump, saying the Republican presidential frontrunner may “put my parents under surveillance since they’re Muslim”.
While celebrities like Caitlyn Jenner praised Trump at the TIME 100 Gala here on Tuesday, Ansari hinted that he was disappointed with the 69-year-old’s abusive rhetoric on Muslims, reports aceshowbiz.com.
“He’s coming?” a surprised Ansari asked of Trump on the red carpet of the star-studded event.
“Oh yeah, he asked for me to be seated in a different area. I’ll go ask him if he’s going to put my parents under surveillance since they’re Muslim,” he quipped.
Trump has come under fire for his views on Muslims, especially over his remarks that he plans to ban all Muslims from entering US.
