Sharon Osbourne Blasts Donald Trump For Using Ozzy's Crazy Train In Campaign Video

She suggested songs by Kanye West or Kid Rock "might be more appropriate".

Sharon Osbourne has laid into US president Donald Trump, after he used one of her husband Ozzy’s songs in a campaign video.

Writing on Twitter in the early hours of Friday morning, a furious Sharon let Trump (and her 2.44 million followers) know that Trump was “forbidden” from using Ozzy’s music in future campaign videos or rallies.

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,” she wrote.

She went on to suggest that tracks by Kanye West, Kid Rock or Ted Nugent – all of whom have publicly endorsed Trump in the past – might be more appropriate.

Sharon’s post was then retweeted by Ozzy’s account. 

The offending video was posted on Trump’s Twitter page hours prior, and used Crazy Train to accompany footage of the Democratic primary debate.

Of course, Sharon and Ozzy are far from the only musical figures to voice their disdain for the Republican party’s use of their music without permission.

Last year, Rihanna issued a typically withering response upon learning that her song Don’t Stop The Music was being played at a Trump rallies, writing: “Not for much longer… me nor my people would ever be at or around one of those tragic rallies, so thanks for the heads up!”

A week earlier, singer and music producer Pharrell Williams sent the POTUS a cease and desist letter, after his tune Happy was played at a Trump rally on the same day as a massacre at a synagogue in Pittbsurgh.
