Stanley Takes Shock Rocker To Task
Some are relieved that Charles Manson is dead. Many others, like KISS alumni Paul Stanley, are understandably furious that he got to live to old age, dying of natural causes when the people murdered at his direction – including actress Sharon Tate’s unborn child – were denied that right.
In some cases, feelings are a little hard to pin down as in the case of shock rocker Marilyn Manson; born Brian Hugh Warner, Manson’s stage name is a nod to late Hollywood bombshell Marilyn Monroe and Charles Manson, leaving people more than a little curious as to what, if any, his reaction to the former cult leader’s death would be.
He didn’t disappoint.
Manson’s tweet, posted shortly after news that Charles Manson had died, was simple; a photo of Manson bearing the word “LIE” and a link to a cover of his song “Sick City”. Stanley responded the next day, slamming Manson as ‘pathetic’ and attention seeking:
“Pathetic when somebody who’s [sic] career never really took off is desperate enough to try for publicity by connecting himself to the news of a murdering scumbag’s death,” he wrote.
Some agreed with Stanley’s Twitter rant:
Others, however, were quick to disagree, calling attention to Marilyn Manson’s musical career – others were even quicker to take shots at Stanley’s own career.
Manson has yet to reply to Stanley, though if he does, we’re sure it’s going to be entertaining.
