Georgia GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene used Dr. Dre‘s music for a political video she posted to her social media channels, but it was a wasted effort since Dre has forced her to take the video down, TMZ reports.
In the video, Greene can be seen walking though the halls of Congress in the wake of Kevin McCarthy winning the House Speakership while the music to Still D.R.E. is playing in the background.
Speaking to TMZ, Dre said he never gave Greene permission to use his music.“I don’t license my music to politicians, especially someone as divisive and hateful as this one,” he said.
12:28 PM PT — Turns out, Dr. Dre‘s team took action — reaching out to Twitter to get the video taken down. As a result, Marjorie Taylor Greene tells us she’s been locked out of her Twitter account for using Dre’s copyrighted work without permission.
MTG also has some words of her own for Dr. Dre, in an exclusive statement to TMZ, she says, “While I appreciate the creative chord progression, I would never play your words of violence against women and police officers, and your glorification of the thug life and drugs.”
