Donald Trump's much ballyhooed Saturday Night Live apeparance started with a tense moment between the presidential wannabe and Larry David.

The Seinfeld creator--on hand for the show's cold open, where he played Bernie Sanders--yelled from off-camera, "You're a racist!"

After Trump feigned surprise at the apparently scripted interruption of his opening monologue, David explained, "I heard if I yelled that, they'd give me five thousand dollars."

Earlier in the night, as dozens protested the vocally anti-immigrant presidential candidate, a Latino group offered any audience member $5,000 should they interrupt the live broadcast by accusing Trump of racism.

Following the bit, the Latino group, called DeportRacism.com, said they would make good on the offer.

"We are excited to reward the Larry David with $5,000 cash for 'standing up' to Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live and speaking the truth about his anti-Latino racism, even though he was joking," the group announced

Groups like DeportRacism.com, many of whom called for a boycott of Saturday's SNL episode, have been highly critical of Trump since he kicked off his presidential campaign this summer with a speech that, in part, took a hard-line stance against undocumented immigrants.
