'Bulletproof' singer rips Fox Business for using song in segment on bulletproof backpacks for kids

The artist behind the hit 2009 song “Bulletproof” tore into Fox Business for using the song in a segment about bulletproof supplies for students such as backpacks.

La Roux, whose real name is Elly Jackson, told Billboard this week that the use of the song was “abhorrent.”

“Using 'Bulletproof,' a song I wrote about relationships, for a piece like this is abhorrent," Jackson said. "I have never, and would never approve my music to be used in this way.”


The song was used to introduce a segment earlier this week on “Mornings with Maria,” in which host Maria Bartiromo interviewed an official from company MC Armor. The company manufacturers bulletproof backpacks, jackets and other clothing and school supplies designed to protect students in the event of a school shooting.

“The song was chosen by the production team and the selection has been addressed," a FOX Business Network spokesperson told The Hill.
