Ariel Pink dropped by record label after attending Capitol riots

Ariel Pink has been dropped by his record label after confirming his attendance at the pro-Trump rally turned riot at the Capitol.

The musician was pictured at the shocking riots in Washington DC on Wednesday evening, along with fellow singer John Maus and filmmaker Alex Lee Moyer.

While some initially thought Pink and Maus could have been making a documentary about the rally, Pink, 42, later tweeted: ‘i was in dc to peacefully show my support for the president. i attended the rally on the white house lawn and went back to hotel and took a nap. case closed.’

Mexican Summer, the label that represented the Baby star, has now confirmed they are no longer working with Pink.

A tweet from the team read: ‘Due to recent events, Mexican Summer and its staff have decided to end our working relationship with Ariel Rosenberg AKA Ariel Pink moving forward.’

Mexican Summer had been due to release the final installments in its Ariel Archives series, Odditties Sodomies Vol. 1, Sit n’ Spin, Odditties Sodomies Vol. 3 and Scared Famous/FF>>, on January 29; it is unclear if these releases will go ahead.

The President has also been permanently suspended from Twitter due to a ‘risk of further incitement of violence’.
