Marilyn Manson Trent Reznor

NINE INCH NAILS frontman Trent Reznor shared his thoughts about recent wave of accusations against Marilyn Manson.

Reznor issued the following statement, via Pitchfork: “I have been vocal over the years about my dislike of Manson as a person and cut ties with him nearly 25 years ago. As I said at the time, the passage from Manson‘s memoir is a complete fabrication. I was infuriated and offended back when it came out and remain so today.”

Yesterday, LIMP BIZKIT guitarist Wes Borland, who was in Marilyn Manson‘s band from August 2008 to May 2009 said that all accusations against rocker are true.

On a livestreamed podcast that took place last night, February 2, on the Twitch channel Space ZebraBorland said: “Can I say something right now, real quick? Marilyn Manson… I was in the band for nine months. He’s not a great guy. Every single thing that people have said about him is f*cking true. So relax about the allegations towards the women… like when people say [bad things about] these women that are coming after him right now… f*ck off, they are speaking the truth.

“I’m sorry to everyone on this podcast right now who doesn’t like this,” he continued. “But that guy, he’s amazingly talented, but he’s f*cked up and he needs to be put in check and he needs to get sober and he needs to come to terms with his demons. He is a bad f*cking guy.

“I was there when he was with Evan Rachel Wood, I was at his house, it’s not f*cking cool. That’s all I’m gonna say about it. If anyone is coming after these girls and going like, ‘You blah blah blah, this and that,’ f*ck you, that’s all I’m gonna say.

“Sorry to take this to a dark place, but that guy is canceled, goodbye, don’t let the door hit you on the way out.”

“He tried to choke me out on stage and I flipped him over and knocked the breath out of him,” Wes added. “He’s not a great guy. Goodbye. My apologies. I was the biggest fan and [now] I am not.”

On Monday (February 1),  Evan Rachel Wood took to social media to wrote: “The name of my abuse is Brian Warner, also known to the world as Marilyn Manson,” she wrote. “He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years. I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission.

“I am done living in fear of retaliation, slander, or blackmail. I am here to expose this dangerous man and call out the many industries that have enabled him, before he ruins any more lives. I stand with many victims who will no longer be silent.”
