Rihanna, Axl Rose Slam President Trump for Using Their Music at Rallies

Rihanna

Rihanna's withering put-down of the Trump gatherings as "tragic rallies" went down brilliantly on Twitter, with the diss racking up over 346,000 likes on Twitter at the time of writing.

Everyone was loving it - except for Rihanna, apparently.

Rihanna was not happy and wrote, "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!"

Over the weekend, the singer took to Instagram to encourage the Miami electorate to "make history" in tomorrow's elections by voting in Democrat Andrew Gillum as Governor. And with just one day before the midterms in the United States on November 6, she is not letting up. That's a platform we MUST support.

She's not the first artist who's been forced into blocking the President from using their music.

Pharrell Williams' lawyer sent a cease-and-desist letter to Trump last month after "Happy" was played at a rally in IL just hours after a gunman killed 11 people at a Pittsburgh synagogue. "Trump's rallies are unlike anything else in politics", wrote Rucker.

The song was playing at the Future Farmers of America rally in IN on Saturday, the same day a synagogue was targeted in the worst anti-Semitic attack on American soil.

"There was nothing "happy" about the tragedy inflicted upon our country on Saturday and no permission was granted for your use of this song for this objective".

Other celebs threw fits, too.

During the 2016 election numerous bands and artists, including Adele, the Rolling Stones and Elton John, requested the Trump campaign stop using their material. It looks like RiRi is next to hit Trump with a cease-and-desist.
