“I Can No Longer Look the Other Way”
The Village People’s Victor Willis has released a statement on Facebook calling for the administration to stop using their song “YMCA” and “Macho Man” at rallies. After last week’s tweet, “When the looting starts, the shooting starts,” by the president Willis spoke out. “If Trump orders the U.S. military to fire on his own citizens (on U.S. soil), Americans will rise up in such numbers outside of the White House that he might be forced out of office prior to the election. Don’t do it Mr. President!” wrote Willis.
Willis wrote, “he can no longer look the other way.” The songs were recently played at the SpaceX launch and for then Willis had no issues with the song being played because it didn’t “endorse” the campaign.
