Pastor Shirley Sets the Record Straight on Legal Action
Pastor Shirley Caesar and her legal team took to Facebook to release an official statement clarifying news that she is not suing DJ Suede over his remix to her “Hold My Mule”.
The facts are that DJ Suede sold the track on iTunes after using it to create the #UNameItChallenge.
Pastor Caesar posted this message on her FB account, “Hello Family, I just got a call from someone asking me about a lawsuit; please be clear, there has been no lawsuit filed.” You can see the complete post below.
It was evident during my conversation with her right before Thanksgiving that she appreciated all the love she received from her going viral, she didn’t appreciate the video DJ Suede released recently that highlighted “alcohol and negative imagery.” And she explains since DJ Suede and Empire Distribution refused to take down the video and song off iTunes at their request, she filed an injunction to force them to take it down and cease and desist sales of the song, which violates copyright and trademark laws.
She makes it clear that although she has not sued anyone, it is well within her rights to do so. She did, however give her blessings to Snoop Dogg on his rendition of the #younameitchallenge and his video.
On another note Pastor Caesar is continuing to Use the #younameitchallenge to be a blessing this holiday season.
