Rihanna has become the latest musician to condemn Donald Trump for using their music at “tragic” Republican rallies.
Writing on Twitter after her 2007 hit Don’t Stop The Music was heard playing at a rally in Chattanooga, Tennessee, the 30-year-old vowed to ensure her songs would not be played at such rallies again.
The US president had been at the event in support of candidate Marsha Blackburn on Sunday ahead of the midterm elections on Tuesday.
Responding to a tweet saying her track was being played “as aides toss free Trump T-shirts into the crowd”, the SOS singer said: “Not for much longer… me nor my people would ever be at or around one of those tragic rallies, so thanks for the heads up Philip!”
Earlier in the day, Rihanna endorsed Democratic candidate Andrew Gillum for governor of Florida.
“You have the opportunity to make history this election,” wrote the Good Girl Gone Bad singer on Instagram.
“The US has only had four black governors in its entire history, and we can help make #AndrewGillum the next one and Florida’s first!”
The backlash follows musician Pharrell Williams sending Mr Trump a legal challenge over his use of the song Happy on the day of the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre.
