Kim Davis Brings out the ‘Ire’ of the Tiger [VIDEO]
Kim Davis, the embattled Kentucky County clerk under fire for not issuing marriage licenses to same sex couples has another problem now.
The use of Eye of the Tiger has brought the ire of the songs writers.
The song was used at a rally in Grayson, Kentucky. Davis was released from jail after five days spent for a contempt of court charge.
"I have not authorized the use of Eye of the Tiger for use by Kim Davis and my publisher will issue a C&D. This does not reflect my views," Survivor founder Jim Peterik tweeted. "C&D" refers to a cease-and-desist order. Peterik further told Billboard, "I was very surprised and dismayed at the misuse of the song I co-wrote with Frankie Sullivan for Rocky lll. The song has motivated thousands through the years to reach beyond their limits. Its use for the release of Kim Davis does not support my views or my politics. I have contacted my publishers to make sure this usage is stopped immediately."
Co-writer and fellow band member Sullivan apparently feels the same way. He wrote on Facebook, "NO! We did not grant Kim Davis any rights to use "My Tune -The Eye Of The Tiger." I would not grant her the rights to use Charmin!"
Davis was jailed after she refused to comply with a court order that the clerk's office grant marriage licenses to same-sex couples, which Davis had previously refused to do on several occasions. Since her jailing, clerk's office personnel have been issuing the licenses.
