    You can now count ESPN among those organizations cutting ties with Donald Trump in the wake of offensive, inaccurate comments about Mexican immigrants.

    ESPN announced Monday that it has moved its ESPY Celebrity Golf Classic from Trump National Los Angeles to Pelican Hill Golf Club in nearby Newport Beach, Calif. The tournament is set for July 14 ahead of the network's annual ESPY award show and benefits The V Foundation's Stuart Scott Memorial Cancer Research Fund.

    “We decided it was appropriate to change the venue, and are grateful for the opportunity to stage the event at Pelican Hill on short notice," said a statement released Monday by ESPN. 

    "This charity outing benefits The V Foundation’s Stuart Scott Memorial Cancer Research Fund, providing resources for important cancer research for minority populations, including Hispanics and African Americans. Our decision reflects our deep feelings for our former colleague and support for inclusion of all sports fans. Diversity and inclusion are core values at ESPN and our decision also supports that commitment.”
