Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic has moved to clarify his comments on a recent speech by Donald Trump.
The widely reported remarks took place on Facebook, and found Krist Novoselic praising the President's "strong and direct" style.
The comments caused a storm online, and led to the musician deleting the original post and making his page private.
Clash reported these initial comments in full, and since that post went live Krist has moved to offer further content to his comments.
In a new post he writes:
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. 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.
