Rebecca Black Pulls 'Friday' Video From YouTube

Today's Friday but there's no Rebecca Black to be found on YouTube. The teenager-turned-YouTube sensation has pulled her video for 'Friday' from the site due to a legal issue over her image.

Accord to TMZ, Black has been threatening to sue her label, Ark Music Factory, claiming they have exploited her image and catchy 'Friday' song. As a result of the impending legal battle, Black's team requested the video be removed from the video-sharing site.

"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," a rep from Black's camp told TMZ.

The move comes just days after a pay-to-watch experiment involving Black's video failed. The user who uploaded Black's 'Friday' video -- presumably Ark Music -- instituted a $2.99 paywall to watch the the clip in its entirety. However, the fee scheme didn't last long and the video was up like normal shortly thereafter.

So those looking forward to having some "fun fun fun" today while jamming out to 'Friday,' don't try YouTube. All you'll get is this message: "This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Rebecca Black."
