Marilyn Manson has done it again, another onstage meltdown in New York last February 15 – and it led to an allegation of harassment from House actress Charlyne Yi, who said video of the event, and fans’ reactions, had been a “triggering” experience.
Manson was set to complete a handful of shows that had been rescheduled due to his stage accident last year. Newsday reported that “when he appeared at the Paramount Theatre in Huntingdon, NY, he only managed to deliver a handful of songs before throwing away his microphone, accusing the audience of not loving him, and walking off.”
The footage down below shows Manson being unhappy and performing with his back to the crowd.
Charlyne Yi took her series of tweets as a response to the news.
“Ugh don’t even get me started on Marilyn Manson,”
“Yes, this happened a long time ago – on the last season of House he came on set to visit because he was a huge fan of the show & he harassed just about every woman asking us if we were going to scissor, rhino & called me a Chinaman.”
“I genuinely hope he gets help.”
In another tweet she said:
“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.”
Yi appeared to have deactivated her Twitter account after she’d received a backlash from bursting Manson supporters,
“It’s fun when you say someone harassed you and then it’s followed by folks harassing you. I wonder if humans will ever get better.”
On the following night, Manson returned to perform in New Jersey, where Stereogum reported that he called the city a “s**thole,” and mooned the audience.
Marilyn Manson’s tour is set to continue in Mexico on May 5 in support of his latest album “Heaven Upside Down.”
