Nickelback's label forced Twitter to delete a video tweeted by Trump

In 2005, Canadian grunge rockers Nickelback released a hit single called "Photograph." In the video, lead singer Chad Kroeger holds up a framed picture of himself and Nickelback's producer Joey Moi as the lyric "Look at this photograph" is heard in the background.


In 2008, the image of Kroeger holding up the picture frame became a popular meme. According to Know Your Meme, it started on a page called "Nickelback is racist" and the meme depicted Kroeger holding up a photo of a man in blackface.

Since, people replaced the image of Kroger and Moi with anything form Trump to Harambe. The memes are also used to mock Nickelback, because even though they've sold over 50 million albums, they are the most despised musical acts on the planet.

On Tuesday, October 2nd, President Trump got in on the act, sharing a video that uses the "Photograph" frame, but this time the photograph is of Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, and Devon Archer, identified only as a "Ukrainian gas exec."

The photo had recently been shown on Fox News.

Here's video of the tweet.

The tweet was Trump's attempt at a "gotcha" moment because Joe Biden claims he never talked with his son about his foreign business dealings. However, just because they were playing golf doesn't mean business was discussed.

Trump is currently under the threat of impeachment because he attempted to extort the president of Ukraine to get damaging information about the Biden family.

Warner Music Group, the company that owns Roadrunner Records, which produced the 2005 Nickelback album "All the Right Reasons" filed a copyright claim with Twitter over the use of the song, "Photograph" in the Tweet.

On Wednesday, Twitter deleted the video.

"Per our copyright policy, we respond to valid copyright complaints sent to us by a copyright owner or their authorized representatives,"a Twitter spokesperson told BuzzFeed News.

It's strange that twitter can get a video tweeted out by Trump deleted because of a copyright violation. But Trump sent out a tweet that other day that basically threatened a civil war, but Twitter wouldn't take it down.

Nickelback hasn't said anything about the controversy. The band is currently on tour in Brazil.

Nickelback's label's victory over Trump has some on social media reassessing their feelings about the band.

Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

In a typical work day, people who smoke take more breaks than those who do not. Every few hours they pop outside to have a smoke and usually take a coworker with them.

Don Bryden, Managing director at KCJ Training and Employment Solutions in Swindon, England, thinks that nonsmokers and smokers should be treated equally, so he's giving those who refrain from smoking four extra days to compensate.

Funny enough, Bryden is a smoker himself.
