Marilyn Manson’s Murder Threat

So, you’re Marilyn Manson. Your attempts to shock America are weakening, and your position as Middle America’s number one publicity generating hate figure is declining, as is the critical reception for your music. What do you do to redress the position? Why, you threaten to murder a few people! Yes, after being angered by some stories about his drug use in the LA Weekly, which leant towards the ‘pathetic junkie’ angle instead of the ‘rock star orgy’ side, Manson has threatened to kill, or have killed, anyone who ‘fabricates’ stories about him. He referred to the “soon-to-be-murdered-in-their-home press” and went on to rant “If one more ‘journalist’ makes a cavalier statement about me and my band, I will personally or with my fans’ help, greet them at their home and discover just how much they believe in their freedom of speech…I dare you all to write one more thing that you won’t say to my face. Because I will make you say it. In that manner. That is a threat.” All of which was posted on a Myspace blog; doesn’t he realise you threaten people on twitter now?
