Marilyn Manson Sparks Controversy By Wielding A Fake Rifle On Stage

Marilyn Manson the king of controversy and the master of chaos has sparked a media frenzy after he wielded a fake rifle microphone on stage during his performance at Ozzfest Meets Knotfest.

Manson was performing his first show after his injury and was wheeled out in a wheelchair to perform "WE KNOW WHERE YOU FUCKING LIVE" and brought with him a new microphone which is attached to a fake assault rifle. The new microphone has sparked a media frenzy with people taking offence to it.

The microphone however is very fitting to the thematics of the song he was performing as well as his live show where the stage features two giant revolvers behind him. The gun is not new to Marilyn Manson who was blamed by the media for the Columbine Massacare and has featured gun elements throughout his artwork, photoshoots, videos and live shows to create an artistic statement.

The media have focused on Marilyn Manson and his fake rifle which has resulted in Marilyn Manson sharing the following statement:

"In an era where mass shootings have become a nearly daily occurrence this was an act of theater in an attempt to make a statement about how easily accessible semi-automatic weapons are and how seeing them has become normalized.

My performance was not meant to be disrespectful or show any insensitivity, The prop microphone I used on stage was handed to me with the approval of a police officer.

My art has always been a reaction to popular culture and my way to make people think about the horrible things that happen in this world.

My empathy goes out to anyone who has been affected by the irresponsible and reprehensible misuse of REAL guns."


Should Marilyn Manson need to defend himself? Perhaps the media should focus more on the real guns and the issues with them!
