Family members of late musician Tom Petty asked President Donald Trump's reelection campaign to stop using his music on Saturday night.

The Petty estate said Trump played "I Won't Back Down" during his rally at Tulsa's BOK Center.

Both the late Tom Petty and his family firmly stand against racism and discrimination any kind. Tom Petty would never want a song of his used for a campaign of hate. He liked to bring people together.
