Twitter took down a meme tweeted by President Donald Trump, in which the music video for Nickelback’s hit 2005 song “Photograph” was edited to attack former Vice President Joe Biden.
Twitter removed the video after receiving a claim that it was a breach of copyright.
Trump tweeted the clip Wednesday. At the moment where singer Chad Kroeger holds up a photo frame, the image was edited to show Biden, his son Hunter Biden, and a Ukrainian gas company board member, seeming to cast doubt on assertions by Biden that he never spoke to Hunter about his business overseas.
He accompanied the video with a line from the song: “LOOK AT THIS PHOTOGRAPH.”
According to Lumen, an online database that tracks and studies copyright complaints and requests to remove online materials, the complaint was lodged by Warner Media Group. Business Insider has contacted Warner Media Group for more information.
A Twitter spokesperson told Business Insider: “Per our copyright policy, we respond to valid copyright complaints sent to us by a copyright owner or their authorized representatives.”
The video began with a clip of Joe Biden saying he never discussed business dealings with Ukraine with Hunter, before cutting to the clip of the Nickelback video with the edited photograph.
Alongside the Bidens were an unnamed man and Devon Archer, a previous business partner of Hunter who was on the board of Burisma before Hunter was invited to join.
This isn’t the first connection between Trump and Nickelback. In 2016, when Trump was a presidential candidate, a man’s sign that read “Trump likes Nickelback” was removed from Trump’s rally by an aide.
