Ariel Pink was released from her music label just days after attending President Trump’s rally in Washington on Wednesday when protesters stormed the US Capitol building.
“Due to recent events, Mexican Summer and its staff have decided to end our working relationship with Ariel Rosenberg, also known as Ariel Pink, to move forward,” the Mexican Summer tweeted on Friday night.
The independent musician was called to Twitter by fans this week after an Instagram post showed him musician John Mouse and director Alex Lee Moyer at a hotel in the city on Wednesday.
When Twitter followers criticized the 42-year-old artist, he admitted that he was at the rally, but was not among those who violated the Capitol, which led to riots and the deaths of at least five people.
