The label tweeted that “due to recent events” it has “decided to terminate [its] working relationship ”with the artist.

Pink – real name Ariel Marcus Rosenberg – was criticized earlier this week after it was reported that he had been present at a pro-Trump rally on the White House lawn on Wednesday (January 6), shortly before a crowd, some of whom were armed, stormed the US Capitol building.
Responding to criticism from fans on Twitter, Pink confirmed his presence at the rally but took issue with claims he was part of the mob that stormed the Capitol.
The 42-year-old wrote: “I was in Washington to peacefully show my support for the president. I attended the rally on the White House lawn and went back to the hotel and took a nap. Case closed. ”
He added: “I have not and have never advocated a violent confrontation or riots. It must be my boomer education.
Over the past week, the artist – who said that ‘Trump and his team are THE geniuses of our time’ – also shared his support for Trump’s denied allegations of electoral fraud, while making it clear that he accepts that President-elect Joe Biden won the election.
Mexican Summer had released Pink’s last album, Dedicated to Bobby Jameson, in 2018, and was due to release Pink’s next music later this month on January 29.
The Los Angeles-born musician is best known for his debut single ‘Round and Round’, which was named 2010 record number one by Pitchfork.
The independent contacted Pink and Mexican Summer rep for comment.
