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.

Trump, Rep Biggs: invoking the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation will ‘be necessary’
At a recent rally in Iowa, former President Donald Trump promised that if elected again in 2024, he would invoke the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation of migrants who have illegally entered the United States. Since President Joe Biden took office in January of 2021, over 6 million people have illegally entered the country.
Republican Representative Andy Biggs from border state Arizona, which is among the states suffering the greatest consequences from the Biden administration policies, lamented that Trump’s suggestion will be “necessary.”
Speaking on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show, Biggs stated “[I]t’s actually gonna have to be necessary.” Biggs then added his thoughts on how many more people will continue to cross the border under Biden: “Because by the time Trump gets back in office, you will have had over 10 million, in my opinion, over 10 million illegal aliens cross our border and come into the country, under the Biden regime.”
“And so when you start deporting people, and removing them from this country, what that does is that disincentivizes the tens of thousands of people who are coming,” Biggs went on. “And by the way, everyday down in Darién Gap, which is in Panama… over 5,000 people a day. [I] talk[ed] to one of my sources from the gap today. And I will just tell you, those people that you’ve seen come come in to Eagle Pass, over 7,000 in a three day period, most of those two weeks ago, were down crossing into the Darién Gap.”
“And those people… make their way up and they end up in the Eagle Pass [Texas], Del Rio area,” he continued. “So if you want to disincentivize them, you remove them from the country, which is why they remain in Mexico policy was so doggone effective at slowing down illegal border crossings.”
