On a season 13 episode of 'The Apprentice', Donald Trump repeatedly called rapper and contestant Lil Jon the racial slur 'Uncle Tom', even after several producers tried to tell Donald that the term was racially offensive. Lil Jon dressed in an Uncle Sam costume as a stunt on the show, for a segment that had contestants competing to advertise hair products. When Trump heard of Lil Jon's stunt, one producer recalled Trump saying, "Look, he's Uncle Tom!" Even after the context was explained to Trump, producers said he kept saying it, claiming, "No, that's a saying, it's Uncle Tom."
