Boy group don't want to be 'associated' with Republican candidate
Donald Trump has angered the Backstreet Boys for using their music as part of his US Presidential campaign.
Trump has used many unauthorised songs since announcing that he would be running for office, being denounced by Neil Young, The White Stripes, Queen and Christine And The Queens by doing so. Other musicians to ban their music from being used by Trump include Adele, The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith and R.E.M.
The Daily Beast reports that Trump played Backstreet Boys hit ‘I Want It That Way’ “multiple times” during a rally in Florida on Wednesday (October 12).
Following the news, a publicist for the group told Daily Beast: “[The Backstreet Boys] did not approve this and we are not associated with the Trump camp”.
Republican candidate Trump has come under increased scrutiny over the past week after making controversial comments about groping women. Further sexual assault allegations have surfaced since.
Meanwhile, Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher recently made drug claims about Donald Trump.
