After a horrible tragedy in a Pittsburgh synagogue that killed11 in the deadliest attack on Jews in U.S. history, President Trump‘s appearance in Indiana caught the attention of some.
According to a story from TheRoot, while the young FAA young men and women waited for the President to take the stage, the crowd danced to a playlist of upbeat music, including “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” by Cyndi Lauper and “Happy” by Pharrell Williams. Williams is now threatening to take legal action for the use of his song.
On Monday, his attorney Howard King issued a cease-and-desist letter to Trump, saying the use of “Happy” constituted copyright infringement and a trademark violation.
“On the day of the mass murder of 11 human beings at the hands of a deranged ‘nationalist,’ you played his song ‘Happy’ to a crowd at a political event in Indiana,” the letter stated. “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 purpose.”
