Rihanna Vs Donald Trump

By  |  0 Comments

RihannaDays after Rihanna urged voters to support candidates taking a stand on critical issues and to cast ballots in favour of Amendment 4 – an act that would restore voting rights to an estimated 1.4 million convicted felons in Florida who have completed their sentences, with the exception of those convicted of murder or sex offences – the singer has condemned President Trump for using her music without permission.

Rihanna made it clear that Trump would no longer be able to play her songs at his rallies after The Washington Post’s White House bureau chief Philip Rucker alerted her to the fact Trump had been soundtracking his political messages with a single from her 2008 album Good Girl Gone Bad: Reloaded.

“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!”

FLORIDA: You have the opportunity to make history this election. The US has only had four black Governors in its entire history, and we can help make #AndrewGillum the next one and Florida’s first! If you’re tired of feeling like you don’t matter in the political process, know the most important thing you can do in supporting a candidate is finding someone who will take on critical issues such as: making minimum wage a livable wage, paying teachers what their worth, ensuring criminal justice reform, making healthcare a right, and repealing Stand Your Ground. That’s a platform we MUST support. Let’s #bringithome, Florida. Vote @andrewgillum. And VOTE YES on Amendment 4 to restore voting rights to folks who have already paid their debt to society. VOTE on November 6th!

The singer’s anti-Trump pledge follows the news that Pharrell Williams is suing him for playing “Happy” at a rally hours after the recent anti-Semitic Pittsburgh shootings. Adele, REM, Aerosmith and the estate of Prince have also blasted his misuse of their music in the past.
