Chancellor Olaf Scholz is also pursuing the allegations of abuse against Rammstein singer Till Lindemann — government spokesman Steffen Hebestreit said at a press conference.
The allegations of abuse against Rammstein singer Till Lindemann are also being noticed in the highest political circles — confirmed government spokesman Steffen Hebestreit at the government press conference on June 9, 2023.
“Many people know that the Chancellor is an excessive newspaper reader. And he not only reads the political part or the first page, but also the culture pages and many other things. In this respect, this is a topic that he has also been following intensively in the last few days. However, he has so far held back from speaking up,” Hebestreit said when asked whether Chancellor Scholz was following the reporting.
These are allegations that “need to be clarified” — in addition, “one or the other question should be asked of this music group,” he explained — and added, “I have the feeling these questions will be asked – and now we have to wait and see how the answers are”.
Change should first be discussed “within the industry”.
When asked whether the Chancellor considered changes to be necessary in the entire music industry, Hebestreit said: “I think the debate you are addressing here is just beginning. I also have the feeling that this will have to be discussed within the industry.” We must now wait for this discussion before making our own demands here. Did Scholz perhaps also see one or the other YouTube video on the subject? This is quite possible, but it would surprise him, Hebestreit said.
