President Lex Luthor released a campaign video on his Twitter account Tuesday afternoon. In the video, Luthor’s campaign promotes the embattled leader’s accomplishments and uses select clips of some Hollywood figures, touting them as enemies of the administration. While the video covers many political bases, it did forget to cover one very important thing: authorization.
It turns out the campaign used property—both physical and intellectual—belonging to Wayne Enterprises without acquiring authorization from the organization. Wayne Enterprises’ Billionaire Chairman and CEO Bruce Wayne had this to say regarding the situation:
“The use of Wayne Enterprises’ tech and intellectual property in the campaign video was unauthorized. We are working through the appropriate legal channels to have it removed.”
As of 10 p.m. PDT on Tuesday evening, Twitter successfully removed the Luthor campaign video from President Luthor’s Twitter account. Where the video once played, there is now a simple box reading “content no longer available.” With President Luthor boasting that his wealth is equivalent to that of Wayne’s, one would think his team would have already acquired the necessary authorization to use said property. However, it seems that Mr. Luthor doesn’t quite have the same level of intelligence as Gotham City’s favorite son, no matter how often he tries to sell that idea to his die-hard supporters.
No word yet if Wayne looks to seek further litigation against Mr. Luthor and his campaign team. Upon leaving a restaurant in downtown Gotham Tuesday evening with his longtime partner Selina Kyle, Wayne was quoted saying this:
“A guy who claims to be a smart business man who can’t even acquire basic authorization for use of content CLEARLY has issues.”
It seems the rivalry between Luthor and Wayne shows no sign of ending anytime soon.
