Considering all the mass shootings in recent times, Marilyn Manson’s decision to perform with a fake gun pointed at the crowd attending Knotfest in San Bernardino, CA yesterday (November 5) has been met with some controversy. As a result, the singer has now issued a statement to Variety regarding the situation.
Manson said the following:
“In an era where mass shootings have become a nearly daily occurrence, this was an act of theater in an attempt to make a statement about how easily accessible semi-automatic weapons are and how seeing them has become normalized. My art has always been a reaction to popular culture and my way to make people think about the horrible things that happen in this world.
My performance was not meant to be disrespectful or show any insensitivity. The prop microphone I used on stage was handed to me with the approval of a police officer. My empathy goes out to anyone who has been affected by the irresponsible and reprehensible misuse of REAL guns.”
As part of his recently announced farewell tour, Ozzy Osbourne will be headlining the UK Download Festival on June 10 (festival runs from June 8-10), Download Paris on June 15 (festival runs from June 15-17), and Download Madrid on June 30 (festival runs from June 28-30).
