George Harrison's estate blasted the use of The Beatles song "Here Comes the Sun" at the Republican National Convention on Thursday.

The song played as Ivanka Trump took the stage to introduce her father, Donald Trump, as the Republican presidential nominee.

The estate posted about the event on Twitter.




Harrison's estate is among many musicians who have denounced the use of their songs by the Trump campaign, ABC News noted. Others have included The Rolling Stones, Steven Tyler, R.E.M., Queen, Adele, Elton John, and Neil Young.

Luciano Pavarotti's family has also complained about the campaign's use of the singer's recording of "Nessun Dorma," or "None Shall Sleep," Reuters reported on Thursday.

"As members of his immediate family, we would like to recall that the values of brotherhood and solidarity which Luciano Pavarotti expressed throughout the course of his artistic career are entirely incompatible with the world view offered by the candidate Donald Trump," the Pavarotti family said in a statement.

Twitter users expressed mixed reaction to the dust-up.
