So, apparently Rush Limbaugh has been using Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer” recently during his idiotic rants about Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke. She recently testified at a Congressional hearing on contraception, which Limbaugh didn’t agree with. And because he’s a complete clown, he’s been throwing words like “slut” and “prostitute” at Fluke on the Rush Limbaugh Show.
Well, Gabriel’s not having it. He requested that his music be pulled from the program immediately and issued the following statement on his Facebook [via RS]:
‘Peter was appalled to learn that his music was linked to Rush Limbaugh’s extraordinary attack on Sandra Flute. It is obvious from anyone that knows Peter’s work that he would never approve such a use. He has asked his representatives to make sure his music is withdrawn and especially from these unfair aggressive and ignorant comments. ‘
