Prince’s Brother Sends Warning To Trump For Doing What Prince Would’ve Never Wanted
Prince’s brother, Omarr Baker, is speaking out on behalf of the late icon’s estate. They have a strong message for Trump that pretty much screams, ‘Mr. President, you can try me if you want to, here!!!’ Okay, so Omar didn’t quite word his message in that way, but he made his warning very clear, regarding what Trump is doing to his brother’s legacy.
The Warning Prince’s Brother Sent Trump & Why
Prince’s baby bro’ is pissed that Donald Trump has been using his brother’s “Purple Rain” song at his rallies and he’s sounding off about it. Why? Well for starters, Trump jacked Prince’s music with zero permission from the estate. Another reason is probably because Trump playing “Purple Rain” at his typically racially biased, sexist, fake news filled rallies, is probably the LAST thing Prince would have EVER wanted. So without further ado, check out Omarr’s statement below:
“The Prince Estate has never given permission to President Trump or The White House to use Prince’s songs and have requested that they cease all use immediately.”
Trump used the “Purple Rain” song at last week’s rally in South Haven, Mississippi, but pretty sure he’s now received the message to STOP IT. How can we be so sure, you ask? Well, because Omarr not only released an official statement through a news site, he also wanted to be certain to place it on a platform where Trump seems to spend most of his time- Twitter.
Pro-Black Actions That Prove Prince Would NOT Want His Music Played At Trump Rallies
Prince was all about helping others and standing up for what was the right thing to do on the side of humanity, as opposed to the side of greedy, racist corporate structures and the people who ran them. Therefore, we’ve listed a few more reasons why Prince probably would be like, ‘Hell to the naw,’ if he were still here to witness Trump blasting his 80’s joint.
Prince Helped Trayvon Martin’s Fam…
As we previously reported, Prince personally helped Trayvon Martin’s family in a MAJOR way, following the tragic killing of the African American 17 year old, by his ruthless murderer, George Zimmerman.
Trayvon represents the victims whose lives Trump adamantly hates to see NFL players kneel in peaceful protest for. In fact, he hates to see them stand up for the murdered African Americans so much so, that he called them “bastards” on national TV. So uh…nah, Prince probably would despise Trump bumpin’ “Purple Rain” at his bizarre political rallies that are oftentimes attended by Confederate Flag lovers and tiki torch carriers. Movin’ on…
Prince Held Rally For Freddie Gray…
Following the 2015 unjust murder of another unarmed Black man at the hands of trigger-happy police, Freddie Gray, Prince stood up again. At that time, he performed for free at the Rally 4 Peace event, in an effort to unify the people of Baltimore following the death of Freddie Gray and its subsequent protests and riots.
“In a spirit of healing, the event is meant to be a catalyst for pause and reflection following the outpouring of violence that has gripped Baltimore and areas throughout the U.S.,” organizer noted in a statement. “As a symbolic message of our shared humanity and love for one another, attendees are invited to wear something gray in tribute to all those recently lost in the violence.”
So again, HELL to the naw is what Prince’s answer more than likely would have been if asked whether or not he approves of Trump blastin’ his music.
