Marilyn Manson Simulates Cutting Onstage

Parents in Los Angeles are expressing outrage after rocker Marilyn Manson simulated cutting himself onstage during the LA leg of his Shock Therapy Tour.

The bizarre behavior occurred one day after Manson issued a personal VIP invite to Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris Jackson, 15, who was hospitalized after a possible suicide attempt.

During Thursday’s concert, Manson dedicated a song to Paris, announcing, “This song is for Paris Jackson” before launching into his song “Disposable Teens.”

Manson sent a message to Paris via TMZ, saying “I hope you feel better. You will be on my guest list anytime you want.”

But during his concert, Manson produced a large butcher knife and simulated slashing his wrist in a manner that is consistent with “cutting” — a form of self-injury that is usually associated with emotionally troubled teenagers.

Parents whose teens are fans of the dark rocker were outraged that Manson included the disturbing cutting behavior in his stage routine.

Paris Jackson is currently being treated on a psychiatric unit on a 5150 hold.
