L.A. musician Ariel Pink, who was dropped by his label for attending the Pro-Trump rally at the Capitol Jan. 6, joined ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ Thursday saying he is “destitute” as a result of cancel culture.

Pink said he attended the President’s speech on Jan. 6 and afterwards, went back to his hotel room to take a nap.

Articles were then released, falsely accusing Pink of attending the Capitol riot later that day.

“These articles obviously placed me at the siege, which I was not at,” Pink told Carlson. “And of course I don’t advocate for violence at all… I was there for a peaceful rally. That’s all it was to me. But there was no fact-checking or anything like that. 130 articles went out in the course of 24 hours. And the backlash was just… they succumbed to cancel culture.”

Pink’a label assured him they would not drop him, but a day later he received notice that the label was going to publicly drop him.

As a result, Pink can no longer record music or go on tour.

“It pretty much leaves me destitute and on the street,” Pink said.

Pink said his family has been receiving death threats all week.

“They don’t even know that I’m here. I had to sneak away because they were so terrified of me coming on TV,” he said. “The hate is just overwhelming. There’s new articles being written. People are so mean.”

“This is what I voted against. I didn’t vote so much for Trump, as against cancel culture and this environment that’s been blazing for four years is about to ramp up and get even worse.”

“You’re taking a huge risk coming on this show,” Carlson said, “Why are you doing it?”

“I don’t have any other recourse,” Pink replied. “Right now the narrative is being pushed and there’s not very many people who are going to let a counter-narrative enter into the fold. I mean there’s no nuance… I don’t know man, I don’t know what I’m going to do,” Pink said emotionally.

“I had no choice. There’s nothing else for me to do. I can’t even afford my lawyer right now.”

Carlson then asked Pink what he thought “the purpose” behind him being canceled was.

Pink responded, “I think it’s desperation and fear that’s driving this whole thing.”

“I think there’s been a very big effort to unseat the president or at least not let him have four more years, which I think is fair, I mean, he lost. And I think he lost fairly. I’m not disputing anything. Biden is perfectly fine with me as president. But I think that they’re still scared of something like that. It seems like they’re sore winners at this point. And people seem to want to kick me down as well, much like they have Trump. Kick us down when we’re down.”

“When reasonable people like you are destroyed, all of us should take notice,” Carlson concluded the interview.

The latest scenario of one woman who has already been sworn in as a juror for former President Donald Trump’s trial is an indication of the complete improbability for a fair trial. Reporting from outside the New York City courthouse, MSNBC reporter Vaughn Hillyard explained the juror called the court to inform them that she did not know if she could actually be fair and impartial.

“She was asked to come to court this morning and went before the defense and went before the District Attorney’s office and answered questions about how she got to that conclusion” the reporter explains.

The juror discussed how she got calls, even yesterday, from friends, colleagues and family “questioning my identity as a juror.” She continued to say “I don’t believe I can be fair and unbiased and let the outside influences not affect me in the courtroom” the reporter quoted.

Hillyard’s report went on the emphasize the difficulty for these jurors in the next six to eight weeks because these are individuals who are supposed to be anonymous, yet we and the sides have some details about who these individuals are such as their neighborhoods and their occupations.
