Aging rock legend Ozzy Osbourne is desperately trying to stop President Donald Trump from using his music for his 2020 re-election campaign. As Breitbart reports:
Rock star Ozzy Osbourne has banned President Donald Trump from using his music, instead suggesting that he uses songs from artists who support his presidency.
On Thursday morning, Trump tweeted a doctored video of himself crashing the Democratic debates featuring Osbourne’s 1980’s hit “Crazy Train.” The video, which has been retweeted over 40,000 times, remains on his Twitter account.
In a statement via his wife Sharon’s Instagram account, the 70-year-old Brit described the use of the song as “unauthorized” while arguing the video amounted to “Trump/Pence political ad.”
“Based on this morning’s unauthorized use of Ozzy Osbourne’s ‘Crazy Train,’ we are sending notice to the Trump campaign (or any other campaigns) that they are forbidden from using any of Ozzy Osbourne’s music in political ads or in any political campaigns,” the statement read. “Ozzy’s music cannot be used for any means without approvals.”
It’s unclear whether or not the video Trump retweeted was an actual copyright violation. Regardless, it’s unlikely even Ozzy Osbourne can stop the ‘crazy train’ that is Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign.
