Yesterday (6 January) the shocking news of the Capitol Hill 'protests' emerged, showing a mob of riled up Trump supporters storming the United States Capitol, which reportedly resulted in four deaths.
It seems that musicians Ariel Pink and John Maus attended the violent protests with filmmaker Alex Lee Moyer, who posted a picture of the three of them at a hotel via her Instagram, writing, "the day we almost died but instead had a great time."
I think the video you're referring to is linked in the next tweet. what I mean is........are they there for sincere reasons or irony reasons? (obviously both = gross!) https://t.co/CSpA1WTG9a— priscilla page (@BBW_BFF) January 7, 2021
Video footage of Maus in the crowd outside the US Capitol has also been posted online, and Ariel Pink seemed to confirm his political views after the protests. He wrote on Twitter, "welcome to the panoptigan. they wasted no time...save yourselves friends, cancel me now and turn me in before they come for you."
