Twitter removed Trump ‘Linkin Park’ clip over copyright infringement

Twitter removed a fan-made video posted by President Trump on Saturday after the band behind its soundtrack complained, the company confirmed.

The video, which included music from the group Linkin Park, disappeared from the president’s Twitter feed late Saturday with the notification: “This media has been disabled in response to a report by the copyright owner.”

The two-minute clip featured Trump’s 2017 inaugural address over a cover version of Linkin Park’s 20-year-old alternative rock hit “In The End” in an effort to paint the president as a Washington, D.C. outsider.

A Twitter spokesperson said the company yanked the video after receiving a copyright infringement notice from the band’s management company.

Hours later, the band took to Twitter to take responsibility for pulling the video.

“Linkin Park did not and does not endorse Trump, nor authorize his organization to use any of our music. A cease and desist has been issued,” the tweet said.
