Actress Salma Hayek slammed Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump for his verbal gaffe about 9/11.
The GOP front-runner confused 9/11 with 7-Eleven during a speech in New York Monday and Hayek, a supporter of Democrat Hillary Clinton, let him have it in a Twitter post.
I am a dyslexic Mexican and English is my second language, however even I do not confuse 7/11 with 9/11. #DonaldTrump
