Prince Estate Demands Trump Stop Playing Purple Rain At Rallies

Contributed by Shawna Mizelle

Brother to Grammy award winning artist Prince and head of the Prince estate recently took to Twitter to tell President Trump and The White House to stop playing Prince music.

Apparently during Trump’s midterm rallies like the one in Mississippi last week, Purple Rain has been played. Once word got back to Prince’s estate they asked the President to cease all use of any Prince material immediately. You can check out the tweet and some replies below.

This will not be the first time Trump was asked not to play an artist’s music. Rolling Stones, Steve Tyler, Aerosmith, Neil Young, and more have ordered the President to stop use of their materials.

It is not clear at this time whether or not the Prince Estate has filed an official cease and desist order.
