Marilyn Manson Joins the List of Those Accused of Sexual Harassment
Marilyn Manson finds himself in some hot water after being accused of making sexist and racist remarks. Actress Charlyne Yi spoke out on Twitter about when the rock star visited the set of the television show House.
According to The Guardian, Manson visited the show because he was a fan. But Yi, in a now-deleted tweet, remarked that he harassed "just about every woman, asking us if we were going to scissor, rhino & called me a China man."
Yi's accusations follow a string of reported erratic behavior by Manson in the news. At a recent show in Huntington, N.Y., he turned his back to the audience and demanded applause for a full ten minutes. The audience, in turn, began shouting, "Refund! Refund!"
In November, Manson, in poor taste, aimed a fake semiautomatic rifle at his concert audience in San Bernardino, Calif., and pretended to fire.
Yi's Tweet regarding Manson continued: “It’s so triggering to see people come up on the internet who have harassed you. And then when you talk about the incidents you become known as the person tied to the harasser. And that’s just your name from now on. It almost overrides who you are.”
Manson has not responded to the allegation, and his representatives have indicated that he doesn't intend to anytime soon.
