Prince's Estate Wants Donald Trump to Stop Playing 'Purple Rain' at His Hate Rallies

By Monique Judge, The Root

onald Trump likely does not care for or about black people. It is evident in his policies, the way he set up his administration, and the way he is currently exploiting the lunacy of Kanye West.

You would think that his overt disdain for people of the darker hue would keep him from trying to use their intellectual property for his own nefarious purposes, but you would be wrong.

Apparently, Trump has been playing Prince’s “Purple Rain” at his rallies around the country, and it’s gotten to the point that the Purple One’s estate has reached out and asked him to knock it off.

Because really, knock it the fuck off, you orange buffoon. How dare you sully the beauty that is “Purple Rain” by using it your hate rallies that only serve the purpose of riling up your rabid, racist base, with their ignorant, non-reading asses.

TMZ reports that Prince’s half-brother, Omarr Baker, said on behalf of the artist’s estate: “The Prince Estate has never given permission to President Trump or the White House to use Prince’s song and have requested that they cease all use immediately.”

Apparently, Trump played the song at his rally in Mississippi last week, and he has played it at other rallies as well.

Trump seems to be on the bad side of other artists, who have also asked him to stop using their music at his idiocracy gatherings.

TMZ reports that Steven Tyler and the Rolling Stones have asked Trump not to use their music.

Because honestly, no one wants their work associated with this dumbass.

No one.

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

Yes, and they are perfectly within their rights to make this demand. In 1964 Goldwater (but not LBJ) was forbidden to use "Hello, Dolly" at campaign events.

Amazing that the author doesn't seem to be aware that trump has the support of about thirty percent of black voters now and blacks and latinos are doing much, much better than they were doing under our "first black president". The tax cuts helped everyone, poor and the rsn hated rich alike, and unemployment for blacks and latinos is at a sixty year low.
