Over the weekend, Twitter disabled a video retweeted by President Donald Trump following a copyright claim by the band Linkin Park. The video, which Reuters described as "campaign-style," featured music from the band and was originally posted by White House social media director Dan Scavino. According to Reuters, the video was taken down after Twitter received a Digital Millennium Copyright Act notice from Machine Shop Entertainment — a company started by Linkin Park.

Linkin Park made a statement on Twitter, saying, "Linkin Park did not and does not endorse Trump, nor authorize his organization to use any of our music. A cease and desist has been issued."


In the wake of the event, fans began to resurface old tweets from the late Chester Bennington, Linkin Park's frontman, as reported by the Daily Dot. Bennington, who died by suicide in 2017, previously spoke out against Trump, calling him a "greater threat to the USA than terrorism" multiple times on Twitter.
