London [UK], Jan. 27 (ANI): English singer Lily Allen, who has been openly critical about the newly inaugurated American president, has released a cover of Rufus Wainwright's 'Going To A Town' as an anti-Donald Trump protest song, accompanied by a video including footage of the Women's March in London. The black and white video, directed by Bafic, with a musical arrangement from Mark Ronson, also features footage of Allen's performance at the women rally organised against the 45th President of the United States, reports the Guardian. Allen recently included Wainwright's song in an anti-Trump playlist she shared on social media. However, the 'Smile' singer was slammed by the LGBT community, when she quoted a tweet from 'Gay Times' about her video, adding the comment, "Fags hate Trump." Looks like some people were offended by her use of the word 'Fags'. One wrote, "please don't refer to us as FAGS, we are lesbian,gay,bisexual,transgender if anyone has to be labeled." "and this "fag" hates you, love," posted another. "it's on the picture!!! Would you call a black man a nigger, because others do? No you wouldn't, don't call us. OK?" said the third. Despite the backlash, Lily has not deleted the tweet. (ANI)
