Donald Trump claimed that he didn’t use his money to suppress a YouTube video that depicted him as a bully singing Queen's “Bohemian Rhapsody”.
The YouTube video in question was created almost 2 years ago in order to protest Trump’s plans to launch a £750 million golf resort in Aberdeenshire. Since the video was approved by the Queen guitarist Brian May, it couldn’t be removed from the website. The video shows a Spitting Image-like version of Trump singing of his relentless determination and unparalleled ego in his battle for “the Great Dunes of Scotland”.
After YouTube removed the video, the rumors were that Trump had something to do with it. Nevertheless, it now looks like the move might have been a publicity stunt by the outfit which is trying to stop the golf resort. They have decided to introduce it as a single and registered it with iTunes.
Trump claimed that he hadn’t complained about the video and couldn’t care less about the song. In fact, the video could only serve to hurt the reputation of Scotland and its people, he says. In the meantime, the protesters simply wanted to get the clip back in the mainstream and to bring more attention to the move.
The video was removed in March after 29,000 views. When it was uploaded again, it reportedly had more than 3,000 hits. However, a week ago it was removed again due to “violation” of YouTube guidelines and because of being “inappropriate”.
YouTube claimed that the clip was removed due to a copyright infringement complaint, but admitted that the users are able to “appeal the copyright takedown”. However, it is unclear who has copyright over the clip if Brian May gave his permission to use Bohemian Rhapsody. Some believe that it could be the protesters.

|I watched a program on the BBC about him building this golf course. It was disgusting how he was treating people who lived next to the course!|

another super-rich asshole happy to step on the
neck of the little guy to amass even more money
he could never spend. Thanks for the article SaM.

|I'm against (next to) a chair, walls and other things often. But I don't have to hate it. Careful with statments inorder to fuse misunderstanding.|
You CANNOT not convict a man or follow hatred as a campainge. Innocents will never be welcome anywhere and for no reason.
I don't know Trump but I am moving to sway,
against what I am. All are welcome,
and that is it... Jesus.
