Mattress maker Serta on Thursday became just the latest company to cut ties with business mogul and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump after his controversial comments regarding Mexican immigrants. Here’s a list of the other brands to end things with Trump:

Univision

When? June 25

The largest Spanish-language television network in the United States canceled its planned broadcasts of the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants, which Trump co-owns. “We will not be airing the Miss USA pageant on July 12th or working on any other projects tied to the Trump Organization,” the company said in a statement. In response, Trump is suing the company for $500 million.

NBC Universal

When? June 29

“Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump,” the network announced. The network won’t broadcast Trump’s pageants or allow him to return as host of The Celebrity Apprentice, though the candidate said he was planning on stepping down from this role anyway. Trump is threatening legal action.

Televisa

When? June 29

The Mexican broadcaster said it would recall their country’s contestant from the Miss Universe pageant. “Mr. Trump hasn’t demonstrated understanding or respect toward Mexican migrants and has offended the entire Mexican population,” the company said in a statement.

Farouk Systems

When? June 29

The Houston-based hair care product manufacturer withdrew sponsorship of Trump’s pageants. “Mr. Trump’s comments do not and will never reflect our company’s philosophy or practices,” said company CEO Basim Shami.

5 Rabbit Cerveceria

When? June 29

The craft brewer that supplies exclusive beer to a bar inside Chicago’s Trump Tower ended their business relationship with Trump. “We would be doing an injustice to the community we serve (and live in) by engaging in business with someone who does not accept our role in society and expresses a rhetoric of hate and ignorance towards us,” founder and co-owner Andres Araya said.

Ora TV

When? June 30

The TV production studio controlled by Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim scrapped a planned project with Trump. “Working with such a closed-minded person would simply not work. Trump’s comments are racist,” said Ora TV chairman Arturo Elías Ayub.

Macy’s

When? July 1

The retail giant said it would phase out Donald Trump’s line of menswear from its stores. “We are disappointed and distressed by recent remarks about immigrants from Mexico,” the company said.
