After scandal about Nazi slogans
Melanie Müller cancels Dresden appearance

A video is currently circulating on social media showing Mallorca singer Melanie Müller surrounded by right-wing extremists. In the meantime, the 34-year-old has distanced herself from their “Sieg Heil” calls. Now she is canceling an appearance because of it.

After a questionable video has recently been circulating on social media, Melanie Müller has now canceled a concert planned for Wednesday evening, as she announces on Instagram. The Ballermann singer should have performed at an Oktoberfest party in Dresden.

The 34-year-old writes about a photo of herself in a dirndl: “After the reports of the last few days, it is important for me to clarify a few things that have been presented in the press before I go back to my fans in Dresden on stage. ” She distances herself from what happened at the performance in Leipzig and hopes “that I will have the opportunity to position myself publicly from a distance. But it takes time for that.” In the current situation, she “can’t just get into a party mood that easily. There’s just too much room for that. The fact is: Nazis don’t belong in my audience.”

In the 25-second video previously circulating, the former jungle queen can be seen on a small stage, surrounded by men, some of whom raise their arms in a Hitler salute and shout “Sieg Heil.” According to RTL, these pictures were taken at a private birthday party. Hooligans from the Lokomotive Leipzig football club are also said to have been there. Some of these hooligans are said to be close to the right-wing extremist milieu. The video does not show that Melanie Müller contradicts the people calling “Sieg Heil” or breaks off the performance.

“Condemn this in the strongest terms”

The reality star had previously distanced himself from the events. She was “dismayed and outraged,” said Müller in an Instagram video. “I would like to clearly distance myself from such people and ideas and I condemn them in the strongest possible terms.” She has nothing to do with Nazis and right-wing extremists.

At first she didn’t hear the calls. But then: “I noticed that radical right-wing and National Socialist ideas were being shouted. I told them not to do that. (…) After two or three more songs I had to stop. I didn’t realize that Lok Leipzig was half of them were hooligans, otherwise we wouldn’t have accepted the gig.”

Known partners in the neo-Nazi scene?

But Melanie Müller’s new partner should also be known in the scene, as an RTL reporter who has researched there for a long time reports: “Andreas Kunz has a wide-ranging company network. Some of them can be assigned to very shady companies. For example Asgaard -Security company that has repeatedly attracted attention in right-wing extremist activities.”

In addition, Kunz poses openly with the Hungarian right-wing populist Viktor Orbán. And: There are photos of him and Melanie Müller. “That would be the ‘Sin City Boxing Gym’, which is known to belong to the extreme right-wing extremist scene in Leipzig. Anyone who associates with such people is deeply rooted in this scene,” the RTL editor continued.
