Donald Trump’s golf enterprise is the latest casualty in the backlash over his controversial comments about Mexican immigrants.

Trump and the Professional Golfers Association “mutually agreed” to pull the PGA’s 2016 Grand Slam of Golf from Trump’s Los Angeles golf course, according to statements from both sides out Tuesday.

The cancellation comes after Univision, NBC and Macy’s severed ties with Trump after he called some Mexican immigrants “rapists” and “killers” in comments during and since his presidential campaign launch.

Trump has refused to apologize for his comments, instead doubling down and insisting that the Mexican government is sending the worst individuals in its society across the border and into the U.S.
