Marilyn Manson posts threat to writers

Marilyn Manson posted a warning to journalists on his myspace about making what he refers to as "cavalier statements" about him, threatening repercussions. "If one more 'journalist' makes a cavalier statement about me and my band, I will personally or with my fans' help, greet them at their home and discover just how much they believe in their freedom of speech," Manson warns. "I dare you all to write one more thing that you won't say to my face. Because I will make you say it. In that manner. That is a threat."

The comments were in response to recent comments made by founder Travis Keller. Keller described Manson as a paranoid cocaine addict (Keller said the first thing that Manson asked him was "Can you get us some cocaine?") who walked around in a side-turned Von Dutch hat. "I was like, 'You're Marilyn Manson?' I remember thinking he's going to come out with some kind of cape on," Keller told L.A. Weekly, "I'd never met him before and thought he'd be hanging out "in a coffin. He's nothing like that." Keller went on to say that Manson's girlfriend at the time, insinuating actress Evan Rachel Wood, was nicknamed "Snowflake" because "when they played shows, she'd hold all the coke."

Buddyhead writer Meathead has responded to Manson's threats, saying "I'm trying to visualize a scenario in which Marilyn Manson actually acquires my home address, achieves a mental state that's close enough to sobriety to allow him to successfully type it into Google and print out the directions, and then makes it all the way over here without getting distracted and sucking off a vagrant along the way."

In 1998, Manson and two bodyguards were accused of beating Spin Magazine executive Craig Marks over a story in the magazine.
