Marilyn Manson's Paris Jackson Tribute: Faux-Cutting Wrists Onstage

At a concert last night at L.A.'s Gibson Ampitheatre, Marilyn Manson paid what was intended to be a tribute to Paris Jackson — whose attempted suicide earlier this week may have been due to being forbidden to attend the show — by dedicating his song "Disposable Teens" to her. Then he held a knife to his arms and mimed slashing his wrists during the song, which angered many concertgoers as well as activist groups who attempt to reach out to those planning to self-harm and felt that Manson's actions were inappropriate and exploitative. (The executive director of one such New York-based group says that "even in creative environments there should be some sense of social responsibility that is aware of the impact of actions and messages.")


Manson had previously reached out to Jackson via Twitter to tell her that she was more than welcome at any of his concerts in the future. [Us Weekly]

I can't believe I am defending Kim Kardashian, but choosing to release your own pictures on your own terms is a lot different than being chased by paparazzi and the photos they try to get.
