Man­son slammed over gig gun stunt

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

ODD­BALL rocker Mar­i­lyn Man­son has been slammed for an on­stage stunt in which he fired a fake as­sault ri­fle into the crowd at a gig in Cal­i­for­nia – just hours af­ter a shoot­ing in Texas left 26 peo­ple dead.

Footage of the in­ci­dent shows Man­son be­ing es­corted onto the stage in a wheel­chair – which he needs af­ter be­ing se­verely in­jured at a gig in Septem­ber.

The 48-year-old then sung his

sin­gle while he pointed the fake ri­fle at the au­di­ence.

He’s de­fended the stunt as an “act of the­atre”.
