Trent Reznor Issues New Statement Regarding Marilyn Manson
Nine Inch Nails frontman and The Social Network composer Trent Reznor has issued a new statement regarding former friend and collaborator Marilyn Manson.
Trent Reznor sent Pitchfork a statment. It reads: “I have been vocal over the years about my dislike of Manson as a person and cut ties with him nearly 25 years ago. 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.”
Reznor’s statement addresses Manson’s autobiography The Long Hard Road Out of Hell. In the book Manson says he and Reznor physically and sexually assaulted an inebriated woman in the 90s. Screenshots of the book circulated on Twitter after multiple women came forward with allegations that Manson abused them.
Manson’s record label dropped him. They released a statement. It reads: “In light of today’s disturbing allegations by Evan Rachel Wood and other women naming Marilyn Manson as their abuser, Loma Vista will cease to further promote his current album, effective immediately. Due to these concerning developments, we have also decided not to work with Marilyn Manson on any future projects”. An upcoming episode of Creepshow featuring Manson will not air and will be replaced. You can read Mason’s response to these allegations HERE.
