The fallout surrounding Julius DeRoma continues.

Roma's $500 donation to David Duke during the former KKK leader's 2016 Senate bid was outed in a blog post and picked up by news outlets around the state Tuesday.

DeRoma, who owns a bunch of property around Minneapolis including Clubhouse Jager, has become a target for criticism since then. 

Tenants of DeRoma's properties, and performers that hold events in his spaces, have been releasing statements condemning his donation. (There's a list below.)

Meanwhile WCCO went and spoke to DeRoma at his house. DeRoma said it's "just basically free speech" and that it's been blown out of proportion.

Here's a list of statements people connected to DeRoma have put out since Tuesday's revelation.
