Meghan Trainor Denounces Use of Her Image, Lyrics in Anti-LGBT Ad: ‘So Wrong,’ ‘Not Okay’

An Australian campaign uses ”No“ lyrics for an anti-marriage equality ad

An Australian anti-LGBT rights group has illegally used American singer Meghan Trainor’s picture and lyrics to promote its ideals.

According to BuzzFeed, the group, called Vote NO Australia – Marriage Plebiscite, unveiled an ad on its Facebook page featuring Trainor’s face, along with the words, “My vote is no. You need to let it go.” The caption is a play on the chorus of Trainor’s hit song, “No.” (The actual song lyrics are, “My name is ‘no.’ My sign is ‘no.’ My number is ‘no.’ You need to let it go.”)

For Trainor, who has repeatedly expressed her support for LGBT rights and marriage equality, this ad didn’t sit well. The “All About That Bass” singer took to Twitter to condemn the ad:

“I SUPPORT MARRIAGE EQUALITY,” she says. “Someone in Australia is illegally using my picture for a campaign against marriage equality. So wrong. Not okay”

Trainor then reaffirmed her stance on marriage equality:

Dear Future Homophobes: here’s a little thing you need to know if you want to use Meghan Trainor’s lyrics and image to promote anti-LGBT sentiments–don’t.
