Pharrell Williams comes for President Trump for using his song at a political event

Pharrell Williams is not happy that President Donald Trump used his song and has told him to stop using his songs at his campaign rallies.
The singer sent a cease-and-desist letter to Trump after the president played his 2014 hit Happy at a political event on Saturday, just hours after nearly a dozen people were gunned down in a Pittsburgh synagogue.

Williams’ lawyer, Howard King, wrote in the letter that the use of the song was not only poorly timed but in violation of copyright infringement and trademark rights

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. 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.”

The letter made it clear that Williams “will not” allow Trump to use any of his musical catalogue in the future .
