With tensions running high for all parties involved in the 2016 presidential election, The O'Jays hit Donald Trump and Florida Rep. John Mica with a cease and desist order over use of "For The Love of Money."
It’s not easy being one of the most despised men in American, especially when your name is Donald Trump.
The Republican presidential nominee has already been under fire for the illegal use of music to promote his campaign, and now the legendary O’Jays have filed a cease and desist order against Trump and Florida Rep. John Mica for the use of their hit song, “For The Love of Money,” which used to serve as the theme song for The Apprentice.
According to TMZ, the ’70s trio “is particularly upset about a video posted by the congressman praising Donald’s involvement in a D.C. real estate deal.” While the video the group is referring to was released in 2014, they “think the video sends mixed messages because they don’t endorse Trump, his agenda or GOP views.”
Unfortunately, The O’Jays didn’t actually write the song, so they have little say in how it gets used, but they want one thing made clear: #WereNotWithHim.
