This morning, Donald Trump shared a political advertisement for the Trump/Pence campaign which featured usage of Ozzy Osbourne’s “Crazy Train” from his 1980 record Blizzard of Ozz. Now, Sharon Osbourne has shared a statement on behalf of her father condemning Trump’s usage of the song. Read it in full below.

“Based on this morning's unauthorized use of Ozzy Osbourne's "Crazy Train," we are sending notice to the Trump campaign (or any other campaigns) that they are forbidden from using any of Ozzy Osbourne's music in political ads or in any political campaigns. Ozzy's music cannot be used for any means without approvals. In the meantime, I have a suggestion for Mr. Trump--perhaps he should reach out to some of his musician friends. Maybe Kayne West ("Gold Digger"), Kid Rock ("I Am the Bullgod") or Ted Nugent ("Stranglehold") will allow use of their music."
