Steven Tyler’s Attack Against President Trump Leaves Him Facing Major BACKLASH
Aging rocker Steven Tyler provoked a massive backlash as he requested President Trump to no longer use his songs at his rallies and now is urged to give a statement.
Tyler is now maintaining that it was not a “political” decision. He says he brought his decision of lashing at Trump due to his passion over “copyright laws.”
According to Bizpacreview.com, a beloved rock star provoked a major backlash on social media this week after he requested President Donald Trump to stop playing his music at campaign rallies.
The ballyhoo began after word broke that Aerosmith’s classic song “Livin’ on the Edge” had been played at President Donald Trump’s rally Tuesday night at the Charleston Civic Center in West Virginia.
In the response to the massive backlash Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler’s legal team submitted a cease-and-desist letter to the White House in which he severely warned the legal ramifications if Trump keeps playing his music.
“By using ‘Livin’ On The Edge’ without our client’s permission, Mr. Trump is falsely implying that our client, once again, endorses his campaign and/or his presidency, as evidenced by actual confusion seen from the reactions of our client’s fans all over social media,” the letter read.
“What makes this violation even more egregious is that Mr. Trump’s use of our client’s music was previously shut down, not once, but two times, during his campaign for the presidency in 2015,” Tyler’s legal team added, referring to previous alleged copyright violations.
Majority of people consider Tyler’s refusal to allow Trump to play his music is practically the same as to the rock star disrespecting the office of the president.
The backlash became so extreme that the rock star finally expressed his attitude in a Twitter statement claiming his legal demands weren’t related to politics but rather about “protecting copyright and songwriters.” As proof, he cited his fervent support of the so-called Music Modernization Act.
