Marilyn Manson accused of harassment by actress Charlene Yi of 'House' fame
Actress Charlyn Yi, who played the character of 'Park' in acclaimed medical drama 'House' claims that Manson visited the set, harassed "just about every woman" there and also made racist remarks at her.
As we reported on Saturday, Marilyn Manson’s return to NYC didn’t go so great. The shock rocker seemed to have a mental breakdown, rambled incoherently in a stream-of-consciousness rant and stormed off the stage after dropping his mic, cutting his set well short and pissing fans off.
And it looks like the week has only turned more sour for Manson. Former House actress Charlyne Yi has accused Manson of harassing women and making racist remarks to her during a visit to the set of the show. Yi made the allegations in her now-deleted Twitter account..
According to Yi, Manson was a fan of the Hugh Laurie starring medical mystery drama and had visited the set of House a “long time ago” only to make the cast incredibly uncomfortable.
Yi said Manson had a habit of making lewd remarks to the women of the cast, herself included, asking if them if they were going to “scissor". Manson’s antics also took on a racist air, as Yi has accused him of calling her a “China man.”
"Ugh don't even get me started on Marilyn Manson. Yes this happened a long time ago – on the last season of House he came on set to visit because he was a huge fan of the show & he harassed just about every woman asking us if we were going to scissor, rhino & called me a China man,” Yi tweeted via the now deleted Twitter account.
Last October, Manson was forced to fire bass player Twiggy Ramirez after he was accused of raping ex-girlfriend Jessicka Adams.
In December, he offered some strong opinions about the current wave of sexual harassment and misconduct allegations sweeping the entertainment industry.
“I just think that if you have something to say, you should say it to the police and not the press and handle it that way first and foremost,” Manson had said in light of the Rose McGowan incident that fired off the #MeToo movement.
Manson also broke down what he sees to be the difference between “serious” and “not as serious” accusations.
“When someone starts complaining about something that happened that seems a little bit not as serious as really sexual assault, I think it’s insulting to people that have been sexually assaulted,” he said in an interview with BBC Channel 4, for which he received some lash back on social media.
Manson is yet to respond to Yi's comments.
