    Hollywood Reporter: Marilyn Manson Goes Through LAX Security with 'F--K YOU' Scrawled on Face

    Unfortunately, his motive seems not what we here at TUG would expect:

    "As we each removed our boots in the security line, he kindly explained that it was not directed at me or anyone else in the airport, but rather at the paparazzi, so that they couldn't sell any photos of him that they took."

    "He was really apologetic about it, and covered his mouth around young children while apologizing to their parents for exposing their child to profanity."

    The strategy backfired, however, as pictures have begun to pop up of the traveling graffito.
     
  2. I don't think it's very punk rock to do something like that, and then go around apologizing for it. Either do it, or don't. That's just my opinion.

    To bad it wasnt directed at TSA, as LAX TSA is worst of the worst.

    Was never a big Manson fan (nothing against him, just never got into his stuff), but he seems like the type who would be well-suited to a protest like this against the TSA. He's got enough money to make it inconvenient for them to harass him and he has few reservations about causing controversy.

    I just have to add that Marilyn Manson is not goth. I do like his rendition of "I Put A Spell On You" though.

    He's not industrial either, so don't push him in our corner.
    But yeah, he does have resources to stir up some ruckus.

    I like how none of us want him. :) And I agree, he's not industrial.
     
  8. I've never been that impressed by him. I always thought he was just a Trent Reznor knock-off. Trent Reznor would never have apologized for pulling a stunt like this.

    Has anyone ever actually given Trent that cup of cocoa and blankie that Tori Amos was talking about?

    That's for sure -- and whatever his stunt was, he would have pulled it for all the right reasons.
