And another one. This time Rihanna is the one to send the cease-and-desist after her ‘Don’t Stop the Music’ song was played at the president’s rally on Sunday in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
On Sunday, Washington Post reporter Philip Rucker tweeted, “It’s been said a million times, but here’s a million and one – Trump’s rallies are unlike anything else in politics. Currently, Rihanna’s ‘Don’t Stop the Music’ is blaring in Chattanooga as aides toss free Trump T-shirts into the crowd, like a ball game. Everyone’s loving it”.
Rihanna tweeted back: “Not for much longer… me nor my people would ever be at or around one of those tragic rallies, so thanks for the heads up philip!”
Rihanna’s legal team wrote a cease-and-desist letter to the White House counsel shortly after. Rihanna joins recent artists such as Steven Tyler, Pharrell and Prince’s estate, who have all warned the Trump administration over their songs being played at rallies.
