Reach out and punch hate

Donald Trump isn't the only dangerous right-wing fucknut to have trouble finding friends in the music world, it seems. Trump had difficulty identifying any artists happy to either have their music played during his election campaign or appear at his inauguration, and now Richard Spencer has been given a verbal smackdown by his musical heroes Depeche Mode for claiming (without any evidence) that they are "the band of the alt-right" (whatever that might mean).

A representative for the band immediately responded in the bluntest terms: "That is a ridiculous statement. Depeche Mode has no ties to Richard Spencer or the alt-right and does not support the alt-right movement." Cue that video of Spencer getting punched in the face, set to a soundtrack of 'Just Can't Get Enough'...
