La Roux, aka Elly Jackson, has expressed dismay at her song ‘Bulletproof’ being used by Fox News in a segment on bulletproof schoolwear.

The news channel’s ‘Mornings With Maria’ programme broadcast a back-to-school piece on Monday this week. It featured a range of bulletproof backpacks and clothing for children that are being sold as the epidemic of school shootings in the US continues.

Using the La Roux track, the show played only the line “This time, baby, I’ll be bulletproof” as the benefits of the items were discussed.

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