Marilyn Manson recently employed a DIY approach to fending off paparazzi at LAX airport, by writing ‘FUCK YOU’ on his face. Oh, Marilyn.
Quite why he thought this would work, given that the one thing any photographer is going to want to catch him doing is living up to his shock rock stylings, is anyone’s guess. As you can see from this E! Online report, paps still took pictures and gossip sites still published them (albeit with his cheeks blurred out).
Still, a day out being all shocking and that has got to be a good one for old Mazza, right? Seemingly not.
One Reddit user wrote: “I just went through the LAX security line with Marilyn Manson. He had ‘FUCK’ scrawled in large letters across the bottom half of his face, with what appeared to be a grease pencil. 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”.
Marilyn Manson, there. Kind, apologetic and wary of teaching children swear words.
