"I was infuriated and offended back when it came out and remain so today."
Reznor, who signed Manson to his Nothing Records label and produced his band’s 1994 album Portrait of an American Family, addressed a resurfaced anecdote from Manson's 1998 autobiography, The Long Hard Road Out of Hell, in which the duo allegedly physically and sexually assaulted an intoxicated woman in the '90s.
"I have been vocal over the years about my dislike of Manson as a person and cut ties with him nearly 25 years ago," Reznor said in his statement to Pitchfork. "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."
