On Wednesday, Melanie Müller should have performed at an Oktoberfest event in Dresden. But she canceled. "In the current situation, I can't just go into a party mood," wrote the former jungle queen on Instagram on Tuesday evening. "The fact is: Nazis don't belong in my audience." At a performance in Leipzig, there were right-wing extremist statements in the audience.
It now has legal consequences. A spokeswoman for the Leipzig police department said on Tuesday that it was being investigated on suspicion of using license plates from unconstitutional organizations, as the German Press Agency wrote.
The question is: What does Melanie Müller have to do with the right-wing extremist scene? The broadcaster RTL has a video on which Müller reacts visibly amused to a Hitler salute and "Sieg Heil" calls from the audience during a performance. The pop singer distances herself.
