Tragic events can have a big effect on what radio stations play on the air and in the wake of the tragedy in Newtown, CT at Sandy Hook Elementary last Friday station program directors have been examining their playlist and removing songs that could be deemed as offensive and insensitive in light of recent events. Kesha‘s latest song, “Die Young”, was quickly climbing the charts but plummeted after Friday’s event and now she is trying to distance herself from the song.

She tweeted the following Tuesday afternoon, “i understand. I had my very own issue with ‘die young’ for this reason. I did NOT want to sing those lyrics and I was FORCED TO.”

That tweet has since been deleted and replaced with the following:

After checking the credits for the song, Kesha receives credit as a writer of the song. The song is from her latest album Warrior and is actually about living life to the fullest although the title says something a little different.

Foster The People know what Kesha is going through with her song because their song “Pumped Up Kicks” was quickly dropped after the massacre at the Century 16 Theaters in Aurora, CO this past July.
