(WSPA) – Tom Petty’s family issued a statement online, saying they issued a cease and desist letter to President Trump’s campaign over use of the late singer’s song “I Won’t Back Down” at a rally.
“Tom Petty would never want a song of his used for a campaign of hate,” they said.
The rally was held Saturday in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The family says in the statement that Trump was not authorized to use the song.
“Everyone is free to vote as they like, think as they like, but the Petty family doesn’t stand for this…we would hate for fans that are marginalized by this administration to think we were complicit in this usage.”
