Ariel Pink has been dropped by independent record label Mexican Summer after he was spotted at the pro-Trump Capitol Hill rally last week.
Last Friday night (8 January), independent record label Mexican Summer announced that they had "decided to end our working relationship with Ariel Rosenberg AKA Ariel Pink moving forward" due to "recent events", which refers to his attendance at last week's protests that saw Trump supporters storm Capitol Hill in Washington D.C..

Mexican Summer were due to release the third and fourth instalment of Ariel Pink's Ariel Archives series later this month. It's currently unclear if Mexican Summer will still release it.
Ariel Pink was spotted at last week's pro-Trump protest/riot in Capitol Hill with John Maus and 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."
The musician revealed via Twitter last week that he attended the Capitol Hill protests to "peacefully show my support for the president. I attended the rally on the white house lawn and went back to hotel and took a nap. Case closed."
