Ariel Pink was dumped by his record company after he confirmed his participation in a pro-Trump rally on Capitol Hill.
The musician was seen together with fellow singer John Maus and director Alex Lee Moyer during the Wednesday night riots in Washington.
While some initially thought Pink and Maus were filming a documentary about the rally, the 42-year-old Pink twittered afterwards: I was in Washington to peacefully express my support for the president. I attended a rally on the White House lawn, went back to the hotel and took a nap. Case closed.
Mexican Summer, the label that represented the little star, has now confirmed that it no longer works with Pink.
Read a tweet from the team: Due to recent events, Mexican Summer and its staff have decided to end their working relationship with Ariel Rosenberg, alias Ariel Pink, and continue.
The Mexican summer should see the release of the latest installment of the Ariel Archives series, Odditties Sodomies Vol. 1, Sit n’ Spin, Odditties Sodomies Vol. 3 and Scared Famous/FF>>, 29 January; it is not certain that these releases will continue.

It was first known that independent stars Pink and Mouse were at the meeting when an image of director Alex Lee Moyer’s Instagram account surfaced on social media, showing what she appeared to be sitting on a bed in a hotel room with Mouse and Pink.
This entry was posted in Washington, D.C. and tagged Moyer: The day we almost died, but we had a good time.
Moyer also shared a story about Instagram that shows the 40-year-old mouse on the lawn, surrounded by demonstrators.
Music lovers were shocked to see the two indie stars in turmoil reading a tweet: Ariel Pink and John Maus attempted a coup last night, and the 2000’s indie kid in me wasn’t ready for that kind of morning hearing.

Although he confirmed that he attended the meeting, Pink denied taking part in the Senate offense, tweeting: I have not and never advocated violent confrontation or disorder.
Supporters of independence stormed the Senate in an attempt to prevent Joe Biden from being certified president.
The low-fi artist has already supported Trump on Twitter, by tweeting last year: From the beginning there was a conspiracy to liberate the seat and demonize this president. it was vicious, shameful and uncompromising. no president should be subjected to this during his term of office [sic].

He also expressed his confidence in the false claims that Joe Biden stole the presidential election, and twittered about it: I have no doubt it was a stolen election. You’d have to be blind not to see them. Even the Dems would agree.
After the riots on the Capitol, in which four people were killed, including a woman who was shot, the Democrats intended to accuse Trump.
The president was also suspended from Twitter because he ran the risk of further incitement to violence.
