Like many other high-profile names, Mick Jagger was quick to share his reaction to Donald Trump's presidential election victory in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Unfortunately for the Rolling Stones frontman, his tweet backfired, and Jagger was branded "distasteful" as he attempted to joke about the election result.

After Trump ended his victory speech in New York by playing the Stones hit, 'You Can't Always Get What You Want,' the singer tweeted: "Just was watching the news... maybe they'll ask me to sing 'You Can't Always Get What You Want' at the inauguration, ha!!"

Jagger's mocking tone didn't go down well with some of his 1.7 million followers and many responded to tell him they didn't see the funny side.

A few commenters did find the tweet amusing and suggested 'Sympathy For The Devil' was a more fitting song choice, while others questioned why Jagger gave Trump the rights to play his song in the first place. It turns out, he didn't.

According to The Evening Standard, a spokesperson for the band confirmed they have never "given permission" for Trump to use their music during the election campaign.

"The Rolling Stones have never given permission to the Trump campaign to use their songs and have requested that they cease all use immediately," the representative said.

Meanwhile, Trump got exactly what he wanted.
