Arnold Schwarzenegger says he's firing himself from 'The Apprentice' after Trump heckling


Arnold Schwarzenegger tells "Celebrity Apprentice" he's fired.

The former actor and California governor announced his departure from the reality show in a statement following an interview with Empire magazine, in which he said that the show suffered from its association with Trump.

"It's not about the show," he explained. "because everyone I ran into came up to me and said 'I love the show... but I turned it off because as soon as I read Trump's name I'm outta there!'"

 The show has yet to be picked up for a second season, but if it does, Schwarzenegger said he won't be on it.

"Even if asked [to do it again] I would decline," Schwarzenegger said in the interview. "With Trump being involved in the show people have a bad taste and don’t want to participate as a spectator or as a sponsor or in any other way support the show. It’s a very divisive period now and I think this show got caught up in all that division."
