Pink Unknowingly Supports Rammstein Amidst Sexual Assault Allegations, Faces Unexpected Backlash From Fans

During her recent concert in Cologne, Germany, Pink expressed her support for Rammstein, which received mixed reactions.

Despite the serious allegations of abuse of power surrounding the band, Pink enthusiastically praised them during her performance, seemingly unaware of the sexual allegations against the group.

The concert, held at the Rhein-Energie Stadium and attended by around 42,000 people, showcased Pink’s “Summer Carnival” tour.

At one point, Pink told the crowd: “I hope that my son and daughter will buy me Rammstein tickets someday.” She praised the band’s performances and said: “If you’ve never been to a Rammstein concert, you have to go there! They set people on fire on stage.”

She then asked the audience: “You don’t like Rammstein?”

The singer was evidently taken aback when an unanticipated chilly hush from the crowd replaced the expected applause.

“No? Don’t like RAMMSTEIN?,” she asked. “Were they cancelled? Why? Did they set someone on fire and didn’t put it out? We really don’t like them? Okay, then we don’t like them together! I’ve been canceled 48 times.”

The day after her concert, Pink responded on Twitter to a fan who drew her attention to a Guardian article detailing the serious allegations against Rammstein‘s lead singer, Till Lindemann.

 “Yeah, that sucks. Someone explained it to me after the show,” Pink wrote on Twitter.

Berlin prosecutors are investigating Till Lindemann, the lead singer of Rammstein, for alleged sexual assault.

Multiple women have accused Lindemann of drugging them and engaging in sexual activity during after-show parties. The Berlin public prosecution’s office has initiated preliminary proceedings against Lindemann for sexual offenses and the distribution of narcotics.

The investigation is based on several criminal complaints filed by third parties not directly involved in the incidents. AFP news agency reported that Berlin prosecutors are carrying out the investigation.

Lindemann has denied all the accusations against him, and his legal team has stated that they will pursue legal action against any allegations of sexual misconduct directed towards the Rammstein frontman.

As a consequence of the accusations against Lindemann, Rammstein‘s four-night residency at Munich’s Olympic Stadium was plagued by controversy. Consequently, the concert promoters scrapped the after-parties and “row zero” experience, while the band tightened security measures. In the wake of the allegations, German politicians demanded improved protection for fans, particularly women.
