In a vain attempt to mock the audio mishap during the first Democratic debate, the President posted a video with the song “Crazy Train”, being completely oblivious of the consequences, on Twitter.
The President’s mocking, however, was short-lived, as the singers Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne criticized him for using their song and asked him to not use their music again for any of his political campaigns.
The criticism came in Thursday evening in response to the video that Trump posted early morning, mocking MSNBC’s technical glitch at the Democratic debate and promoting his campaign for re-election in 2020.
Prior to posting the video, he also condemned the media for brief interruption in his ever-harsh stance and later took to Twitter, writing, ”@NBCNews and @MSNBC should be ashamed of themselves for having such a horrible technical breakdown in the middle of the debate. Truly unprofessional and only worthy of a FAKE NEWS Organization, which they are!”
In retort of the video, Sharon Osbourne wrote, “Based on this morning’s unauthorized use of @OzzyOsbourne’s ‘Crazy Train,’ we are sending notice to the Trump campaign they are forbidden from using Ozzy’s music in political ads.”
The couple not only slammed the President, but also pointed out Trump-supporting musicians, who might lend him their music for his political campaigning and benefits.
The Osbourne’s have become the latest to join the artists who forbade Trump to use their music for political campaigns. Various singers like Neil Young, Steven Tyler of AeroSmith, Pharrell Williams, Rihanna and Adele has expressed their discomfort on the usage of their music for his campaigns.
Previously, Sharon Osbourne during her appearance on “The Apprentice” expressed her disgust towards Trump, saying, “It’s kind of fearful. We kind of wake up every day and go, ‘What’s gonna happen now?’”
With slamming Trump on usage of Crazy Train, both Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne have made clear that they are not willing to let their music be used for derogatory mockery, political gains or campaigns.
