NEW YORK (AP) – Macy’s is the latest company to end its relationship with Donald Trump as the fallout from the real estate mogul’s remarks about Mexican immigrants continues.

Macy’s has carried a Donald Trump menswear line since 2004, including $70 button down-shirts and $65 striped ties. Macy’s said in a statement the retailer is disappointed and distressed by Trump’s remarks and will end its relationship with him.

Companies have been cutting ties with Trump left and right after his presidential campaign kickoff speech last week in which he declared that some Mexican immigrants bring drugs and crime to the U.S. and are rapists.

NBC, Spanish-language station Univision, TV company Ora TV and Mexican TV network Televisa have all cut ties with Trump, who is suing Univision for $500 million for breach of contract for dropping the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants.
