Peter Gabriel wants his music pulled from Rush Limbaugh's show
(CBS News) Peter Gabriel wants his music pulled from Rush Limbaugh's radio show, following the conservative commentator's remarks about Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke.
A rep for Gabriel posted a message on his Facebook page Monday, asking that his music no longer be used on Limbaugh's show. Gabriel's song "Sledgehammer" played in the background while Limbaugh called Fluke a "slut" and a "prostitute" after she testified at a Congressional hearing about contraception.
"Peter was appalled to learn that his music was linked to Rush Limbaugh's extraordinary attack on Sandra Fluke," the message reads. "It is obvious from anyone that knows Peter's work that he would never approve such a use. He has asked his representatives to make sure his music is withdrawn and especially from these unfair aggressive and ignorant comments."
