Atlanta, GA – American history, from the War of Independence to the civil rights movement, has been set to the soundtrack of protest songs.
The anti-Trump movement now has a new, and especially catchy, refrain — and we’ve all got Ludacris to thank for it.
Marching through the streets of Ludacris’ hometown of Atlanta, Georgia, demonstrators paid homage to one of Ludacris’ most iconic tracks… while adding their own anti-Trump twist. Marchers in the streets chanted “Move, Trump! Get out the way,” a play on Luda’s famous “Move, bitch! Get out the way!” hook on 2002 hit “Move Bitch.”
AJC.com estimated that there were roughly 2,000 protesters that participated in the march from downtown to Martin Luther King, Jr.’s tomb.
The march in Atlanta was one of many that took place across the country this weekend in response to a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that led to the death of Heather Heyer, an anti-racism counter-protester on August 12.
Trump’s equivocal condemnation of neo-Nazis and white supremacist groups such as the Ku Klux Klan has been seen as emboldening racists across the country — and made him a prime target for chants such as this one.
On his own Instagram account, Ludacris didn’t shy away from the new use for his music, sharing a video of the marchers alongside the caption “#MoveTrump.”
