'House' Actress Charlyne Yi Accuses Marilyn Manson of Harassment Following Concert Meltdown
After Marilyn Manson displayed “bizarre” behavior onstage during a concert in New York on Thursday (Feb. 15), actress Charlyne Yi took to Twitter to state that the incident wasn't the first time the rocker has acted out.
On Friday night Yi, who appeared as a series regular on Fox’s medical drama House, said that Manson visited the cast while they were filming the final season as a fan and "harassed just about every woman asking us if we were going to scissor, rhino & called me a China man."
After expressing her hope that the rocker “gets help,” Yi said seeing news of Thursday's performance was "triggering." She added, "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 made headlines in October 2017 after publicly accusing actress Amber Tamblyn's husband, David Cross, of making racist comments years ago.
Fan-shot videos from Manson's concert on Thursday showed the 49-year-old delivering a half-mumbled, half-sung monologue, while his band played an extended blues jam. After acting strangely on stage for more than an hour, the rocker reportedly ended the show, sparking anger among fans. By the end of the show, local paper Newsday reported that the crowd was chanting, “Refund! Refund!”
Manson’s Thursday performance joins a slew of controversial moments the rocker has endured in recent months. Manson fired former bassist Twiggy Ramirez last October, after Ramirez faced allegations of sexual assault. Last November Manson sparked controversy after aiming a fake rifle at his San Bernandino audience.
