Marilyn Manson to Press Charges for Canadian Scuffle

MARILYN MANSON

Well, it’s been a hell of a week for Marilyn Manson.

During the weekend, the “Antichrist Superstar” was punched in the face after allegedly calling a man’s girlfriend a “bitch” at a Denny’s in Alberta, Canada.

The incident occurred after his concert at Lethbridge’s Enmax Center this past Saturday (April 4) during the Alberta stop of his “Hell Not Hallelujah” Tour in support of his recent album, The Pale Emperor.

When the news made headlines, via TMZ, the gossip site had reported that Manson instigated the fight, but turns out that the witness accounts of the scuffle were contradictory.

According to Manson’s manager, the musician was enjoying a meal at Denny’s when two women approached him to ask for photos. Manson agreed and was then punched in the face by one of the women’s boyfriend.

“He was being friendly with everyone, anyone who wanted a picture, he would give them a picture, anyone who wanted an autograph he would give them an autograph,” explains restaurant patron/witness Johnny Scott.

“They were just talking and the guy just punched him right in the face without any provocation. He just took the shot and ran off right away. Then, I remember seeing him in the parking lot ducking behind cars, he looked terrified.”

And now the guy has a real reason to be terrified. Unlike when the police arrived on the scene, Manson and his makeup artist, who was also hit in the scuffle, have decided to press charges against the assailant.

On a side note, don’t punch anyone especially a big time musician, in the face for no reason at all.

NOFX’s Fat Mike Knocks Fan Out During Show

Usually when a musician tells you that they are in pain, but will continue to play a show for you, that should be your cue to not do anything stupid to them.

Apparently, a NOFX fan learned that the hard way during a show down under.

NOFX were performing at the Enmore Theater in Sydney when a fan jumped on the stage. The fan, who has been identified as Alex, jumped on stage and put his arm around Fat Mike’s neck; where all his pain was. So, normal human reflect kicked in and Fat Mike punched and then kicked him down to the floor. The fan was then taken off stage by two securities, as can be seen in the video below.

But, that’s not where the story ends. Alex took to Twitter after the incident and apologized to Fat Mike about what he did. He admitted that he was drunk and forgot Fat Mike had mentioned the pain in his neck.

Check out the exchange below.

But as always there are people who are saying the punch and kick were uncalled for. We have to wonder if they would be OK and oh so gracious with someone grabbing onto their neck while they were in pain or if they would do that same thing.
