Rebecca Black YANKS 'Friday' Off YouTube

6/16/2011 3:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The FUN, FUN, FUN is over ... Rebecca Black has officially pulled her "Friday" video off of YouTube  ... and TMZ has learned it's all over a fight over Rebecca's image.

Rebecca Black Friday

TMZ spoke with a rep for Black who tells us, "We can confirm that we submitted a Take Down Notice to YouTube as a result of the dispute we have with Ark Music regarding the 'Friday' video."

As we previously reported, Black's people have threatened legal action against Ark -- claiming the company that produced and wrote the song is wrongfully exploiting her image and her song because Ark does not own the rights to either.

Earlier this week, Ark -- which ran the YouTube account that hosted the video -- set up "Friday" as a $2.99 YouTube video rental. Clearly, the move pissed off Black's camp ... a camp that was simply looking forward to the weekend.

Yes, she's in Katy's new video, and she's just a kid so I don't blame her parents for not wanting that company to exploit her.

Ark Music Factory is run by a bunch of pedobears, anyway. They sexualize girls as young as 11 years old. It's coming back to bite them in the rear end and they can't stand it. The top 2 people at Ark are *****ian, according to Wikipedia. *****ia, home of big time internet scammers. Both 60 Minutes and Dateline NBC's Chris Hansen have went after *****ian internet scammers.

This demonstrates the dumbing down of musical taste.

It's doubtful Ark would've posted the $2.99 video UNLESS they felt some would pay it. Sadly, some probably did.

Wasn't it because this video was posted that she was recognised? Did she post the video or was it this ARK that posted it in the first place? Confused!

I dont understand why Disney hasn't offered her a contract? Disney has a office full of perverts who like to sexually exploit young girls.

At 13 she has more talent then most in hollywood industry, maybe not in singing but she looks like to have a natural talent in theater and or acting.

And she doesn't come close to being as irritating as JB she doesn't act like something she isn't (black)!
