In a refreshing rebuttal of the cancel culture’s outrage that the Village People, the famous 1980’s band, are allowing Donald Trump to use their music during his campaign rallies, the band doubled down and stated their music is for anyone to use, irrespective of their political affiliation.
The Washington Times reported:
The Village People declared their music is for everyone, “regardless of their political affiliation,” after President Trump irked disco fans by using “Y.M.C.A.” and “Macho Man” during campaign events.
The Village People’s 1978 hit “Macho Man” played to a packed cricket stadium in Ahmedabad, India, just before Mr. Trump and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi took the stage on Monday.
The article goes on the say:
“With the latest use of ‘Macho Man’ in India, we are being inundated and can no longer remain silent,” the band wrote on Facebook.
“Since our music is not being used for a specific endorsement, the President’s use is ‘perfect[ly]’ legal,” the band continued. “He has remained respectful in his use of our songs and has not crossed the line; if he or any other candidate were to use any of our songs in a manner that would suggest our endorsement, or in a promotional advertisement, that would cross the line.
