It seems as if everyone has a Donald Trump tape lying around, as more questionable recordings surface, but “The Apprentice” producer Mark Barnett wants no part in it.
In a statement acquired by CNN, Mark Burnett and media company MGM says no footage from the reality show will be released. This, after producers from Donald Trump’s time on “The Apprentice” accused the Donald of saying far worse things than captured in his 2005 conversation with Billy Bush.
In a now deleted tweet, Chris Nee even accused the current Republican presidential candidate of using the N-word: “I don’t have the tapes. I’ve signed a Burnett contract & know leak fee is 5 mill. Hearing from producers/crew N word is the ‘much worse.'”
Burnett and MGM addressed the rumours, doubling down on the fact that no tapes from the show can legally be released: “Mark Burnett does not have the ability to, nor the right to release footage or other material from ‘The Apprentice’.
Adding: “The recent claims that Mark Burnett has threatened anyone with litigation if they were to leak such material are completely and unequivocally false.”
