“Due to recent events, the Summer Mexican team and his staff decided to end their business relationship with Ariel Rosenberg AKA Ariel Pink moving forward,” chirp The New York-based record company Friday.
(As of Friday afternoon, Pink’s page on the Mexican summer website was still active.)
The announcement came just a day after Pink made it clear on Twitter that he had attended the Washington, DC rally “to peacefully demonstrate my support for the president.”
“I attended the gathering in the lawn of the White House and went back to the hotel and took a nap. The case is closed.” chirp Thursday in response to a Twitter user who called Pink and fellow freelance musician John Maus to participate in Wednesday’s event.
Although Pink confirmed that he attended the capital’s rally to protest the presidential election results, he denied being part of the mob that stormed the Capitol while Congress was running the official process to certify President-elect Joe Biden’s victory over President Trump.
Pink, who was born to Ariel Marcus Rosenberg in Los Angeles, had been public about his support for Trump and encouraged people to vote for him ahead of the violent events of this week.
In December Pink tweeted, “I am not Maja,” in response to a Twitter user questioning his support for the president. “I simply think Trump is the only thing standing in the way of total breakdown. The false media psychologists seeking the Biden / Harris presidency are even more terrifying to me.”
