Marilyn Manson’s return to the stage earlier this week, months after suffering a nasty in-concert injury, was not exactly a triumph, with the shock rocker cutting the show short after a bizarre onstage meltdown that had fans calling for a refund.
Following Manson’s unfortunate return to the headlines, actress Charlyne Yi took to Twitter to share a not-particularly pleasant encounter with Manson from back in the day, alleging the “Beautiful People” singer sexually harassed her and other women on the set of “House”.
As Yi explains, Manson was a “huge fan” of the Hugh Laurie-starring medical drama (on which Yi portayed Dr. Chi Park) when he dropped by the set to visit with the cast.
Unfortunately, alleges Yi, Manson “harassed just about every woman,” and even got racist by calling her “a China man.”
Commenting on his apparently altered state of mind during his concert meltdown, Yi adds: “I genuinely hope he gets help.”
Yi followed up her allegation by pointing out that she finds it “so triggering to see people come up on the internet who have harassed you. And then when you talk about the incidents you become known as the person tied to the harasser. And that’s just your name from now on. It almost overrides who you are.” (She subsequently deleted that tweet).
Yi’s comments were met with scorn by Manson’s fans, a situation she addressed in a subsequent tweet.
