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.

It's gone but does anyone care. A annoying pop song that came out months ago. At this point they are fighting just to get publicity. Sorry but most of us wi***** was Saturday so we could be over this annoying song and move on to her next 50 singles that suck just as much and less will care about.

Funny enough, she made Katy Perry's "Friday Night" video blow up. She is internet gold.

When I heard this song on glee's prom episode. I checked out who's the original artist (obviously, never known Rebecca Black). Then I went to YouTube to see the official video. Glee's version is much better than her version. Good Move Rebecca.
