Here comes the shade.
The estate of former Beatle George Harrison tore into the Republican National Convention, after the RNC played Harrison’s “Here Comes the Sun” to accompany Ivanka Trump’s entrance onstage Thursday.
The estate trashed the RNC, calling its use of the song “offensive” and definitely unauthorized.
“The unauthorized use of #HereComestheSun at the #RNCinCLE is offensive & against the wishes of the George Harrison estate,” read a tweet on the official Twitter page of Harrison, who died in 2001.
And then came the second blow — and it was a doozy.
“If it had been Beware of Darkness, then we MAY have approved it!” the estate tweeted, in a reference to a song from Harrison’s 1970 album “All Things Must Pass.”

For good measure, the estate added the hashtag “#TrumpYourself,” the slogan of a Facebook app launched this week by GOP nominee Donald Trump’s rival Hillary Clinton.
The RNC has been taken to task by a number of musical artists whose work was played at the convention. Queen ripped into the GOP after its iconic tune “We Are the Champions” was played at the gathering, while Earth Wind & Fire voiced their displeasure over the use of its song “September” during the convention.
If it had been Beware of Darkness, then we MAY have approved it! #TrumpYourself
