Charlyne Yi accuses shock rocker Marilyn Manson of harassment

Charlyne YiActor and comedian Charlyne Yi has accused Marilyn Manson of harassment after the shock rocker had a reported meltdown during a New York concert on February 15.

Yi took to Twitter and detailed an instance where Manson visited the set of Fox’s medical drama series House and “harassed just about every woman” who was there, “asking us if we were going to scissor, rhino & called me a China man.”

The tweets were later deleted when Yi faced a backlash from Manson fans. To which, Yi replied: “It’s fun when you say someone harassed you and then it’s followed by folks harassing you. I wonder if humans will ever get better.”

Yi reportedly also expressed her distress in reliving those experiences after watching Manson’s performance. In the tweet posted on February 17th, Yi said “It’s so triggering to see people come up on the internet who have harassed you. And then when you talk about the incidents you become known as the person tied to the harasser. And that’s just your name from now on. It almost overrides who you are.”

According to Newsday, Manson had been performing as part of a rescheduled show due to his stage accident last year. At the Paramount Theatre in Huntington, New York, Mansion only delivered a few songs as part of a tour of his album “Heaven Upside Down,” before throwing away his microphone and accusing his audience of not loving him. By the end of the show, the audience was shouting “Refund! Refund!

One Manson fan was disappointed: “Six songs in an hour and a half, one song was about 30 minutes – mainly with his back to the crowd and no singing.”

This is not the first time Yi has remembered an instance of racism she faced.

When many women first came forward in October with stories about sexual harassment and assault in the wake of the #MeToo movement, Yi recalled her first interaction in 2007 with comedian David Cross, which turned out very offensive.

Cross disputed the use of racist language against Asian cultures and said he was surprised by the accusations.

Addressing the video posted online of Manson’s performance on stage, Yi said she wished the shock rocker well. “I genuinely hope he gets help.”
