Ariel Pink Dropped by Mexican Summer After Appearing at Pro-Trump Riots

Ariel Pink Dropped by Mexican Summer After Appearing at Pro-Trump Riots”

After attending January 6's demonstration-turned-riot at the U.S. Capitol, lo-fi indie artist Ariel Pink is feeling a backlash from fans and music industry professionals alike.

Mexican Summer tweeted that they would stop working with the artist, real name Ariel Rosenberg, on Friday.

According to Pitchfork, the photograph confirming Pink's attendance (alongside fellow musician John Maus) was taken by filmmaker Alex Lee Moyer and posted to Instagram with the caption "the day we nearly died but instead had a great time".

Now, Ariel Pink's record label Mexican Summer has dropped him.

He has collaborated with many well-known artists including Miley Cyrus, Charli XCX and Sky Ferreira.

Subsequently, incendiary comments Pink had made in a podcast in December came to light that may have further endangered his relationships in the music community. "All the smarts in the world that they had, all their artistic f****** genius... was just window dressing".

Responding to a Twitter consumer who drew consideration to his attendance, Pink mentioned: " I used to be in DC to peacefully present my assist for the president.

Pink - real name Ariel Marcus Rosenberg - came under fire earlier this week after it was reported that he had been present at a pro-Trump rally on the White House Lawn on Wednesday (6 January), shortly before a mob, some of whom were armed, stormed the U.S. capitol building.
