On Thursday, Apple removed Donald Trump and the J6 Prison Choir’s song “Justice For All” from the iTunes store leading to it losing its number one ranking on the charts which it has enjoyed for a week.
The song, which features President Trump reciting the Star Spangled Banner and the J6 Choir reciting the National Anthem, has, as of Friday, reached number one on Apple music beating out artists like Miley Cyrus.
In addition to the song’s release, a music video was also published which shows images from President Trump’s presidency as well as shots of January 6th.
According to the website created for the song, https://j6prisonchoir.com, all proceeds from the song will go to help the families of January 6 prisoners.
The website also goes into detail about who is a part of the J6 Prison Choir, writing, “J6 Prison Choir consists of individuals who have been incarcerated as a result of their involvement in the January 6, 2021 protest for election integrity after President Donald J. Trump stated ‘I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.'”
“The J6PC continues to make their voices heard through the power of music and sings ‘The Star Spangled Banner’ every evening before bed,” the description reads.
In addition to the song dominating the charts, a vinyl recording was also released and is available to purchase for $99: “The vinyl record features the single ‘Justice For All’ on side A, and a special bonus audio recording from Donald J. Trump on side B.”
The song, which sold on iTunes for $1.29 had over 22,000 downloads from March 3rd to March 13th, as reported by Forbes.
Kash Patel told Breitbart that an Apple Music representative reached out to him to explain that it was a miscommunication internally that saw its removal.
“Seems to have been miscommunication between our communications department and our music operations team,” the representative told Patel who helped to produce the song. “The issue has been escalated and should be back up on our platform soon.”
“It’s no surprise that suppression of free speech and charitable endeavors has now extended to the music entertainment industry and Apple Music,” Patel said in response to the removal. “They have pulled down a song that was number one on their own charts for seven straight days, and the only reason they have is because it’s a miscommunication. If we were raising money for Ukraine, like Brad Paisley did, they would never pull this song.”
He then went on to claim that an intern could have had the ability to remove the song and that the removal has led to it losing its ranking.
Apple Music rushed to get the song reinstated leading to it being back on the platform by Thursday afternoon.
