"There were initial discussions about including the song in the film score, but negotiations stopped so we were under the impression that it wasn't happening," the agency said, according to the Hollywood Reporter.The alleged decision to use the song unsolicited appears even more tasteless when considering the content of the scene itself. Franco's character and the character representing North Korean leader Kim Jong Un decide to hire a herd of strippers and throw a party that would make Miley Cyrus blush. Classy!
"It was only after the film was released that we became aware of the song's unauthorized use, without taking the appropriate and necessary steps to complete a contract with the artists."When will it end?
