Univision anchor Maria Elena Salinas was booed by several graduating students and their families when she criticized presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and spoke Spanish during a commencement speech on Sunday at the School of Communications at California State University, Fullerton.
After the speech, Salinas retweeted a comment calling her critics "racist white people" and adding her own comment, "That's not the "America" we want."

In video of the incident posted by The Washington Post, a woman's voice can be heard yelling at Salinas to "get off the stage!" at 1:29 in the video.
The booing of Salinas was first reported by graduating student Denise De La Cruz at OC Weekly.
Salinas' speech was well-received until it became a little too Latino-centric for some and blatantly anti-Trump. The Univision broadcaster began specifically congratulating Latino journalism graduates for what seemed like a large chunk of her speech. She then began speaking in Spanish and asked the crowd to repeat a few inspirational words after her, in Spanish. This left non-journalism grads and non-Latinos/non-Spanish speakers feeling excluded. Parents in the audience and even students in the ceremony began demanding Salinas switch to a more inclusive tone by shouting phrases such as, "What about us?!"(Excerpt. Entire account of the incident at OC Weekly.)
Salinas responded to De La Cruz on Twitter, accusing her critics of "racism".
