Former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic has issued a statement clarifying comments he made in support of U.S. President Donald Trump.
On Wednesday Novoselic received a barrage of backlash from people after posting support for President Trump’s ‘Strong and Direct tone’ when he threatened military intervention against protestors.
After deleting his original post, Novoselic returned to Facebook to clarify his comment:
“To clarify a few things: As an avowed independent, I don’t endorse a major party or candidate. And it feels insane to have to say this , but I don’t support fascism, and I don’t support an authoritarian state,” he wrote on Facebook. “I believe in a civilized society and that we all have to work toward that. Love and thanks to anyone who cares to read this.”
