A record label has dropped the band Dream Machine after two of its members were caught expressing “ugly opinions” about political correctness, safe spaces, feminism and immigration.
In a Facebook statement yesterday, Castle Face Records criticized comments that musician couple Doris and Matthew Melton made during an interview with the French publication Still in Rock. While the California-based record label can’t pull the album it released in May, it vowed to donate profits from sales to charity.
“We’re horrified and ashamed by this, and we appreciate people being upset but respectful in letting us know how they felt about it,” the record label posted on Facebook.
Doris, who immigrated legally to the United States from Bosnia, approved of recent crackdowns by Immigrations and Customs Enforcement targeting immigrants with criminal histories.
“ICE is just doing their job,” she said, “and I’m glad they’re finally starting to work on deporting criminal illegal aliens too.”
She also said illegal migration makes it more difficult “for people who do want to become a part of American society the right way.”
The United States “is handing out free money to people who come here illegally,” she said, “but when you want to work hard to become an American citizen to start a family they make it so hard on you, and expensive.”
Matthew also made a quip about Europe’s current inlux of migrants.
“Just like the waves of refugees pouring into Europe I will not be learning any new languages or culturally assimilating,” he said. “We’re bringing Austin to Amsterdam.”
