Prince fans aren’t happy to see their pop-star’s death used for political gain.
During a campaign rally in Dunmore, Pennsylvania, Hillary Clinton walked out to Prince’s iconic “Let’s Go Crazy” anthem, following his death earlier in the week.
Check out Clinton’s entrance here:
“You think of him as being almost eternal,” Clinton said to a Philadelphia radio station after learning of his passing. “I mean, he was a bigger-than-life personality. He was not only a songwriter and a singer but literally a one-man band. He was such a great showman. I just was so, so sad.”
But, longtime Prince fans quickly took to Twitter to show their disdain for Clinton using a Prince song in order to gain political points possibly, or make it seem as though she, herself, was an avid Prince fan.
Check out their response:

Hmmm. Which Prince song will Hillary Clinton choose for her hot saucy campaign?

I’m just sitting here waiting on Hillary Clinton to say she had her first kiss to a Prince song.

If Hillary knew more than one Prince song before yesterday, I’d have eaten my hat.
