Marilyn Manson points fake rifle at crowd during San Bernardino concert

November 6, 2017

Marilyn Manson pointed a fake rifle at audience members during a concert Sunday night in San Bernardino, California.

Manson performed the song, “We Know Where You [Expletive] Live” off of his new album, “Heaven Upside Down,” while singing into a microphone attached to the scope of a fake semi-automatic rifle, according to video obtained by TMZ.

The controversial performer pointed the fake gun at members of the audience while the drums serve as rapid fire, the Orange County Register reported.

The performance at Knotfest in San Bernardino’s Glen Helen Amphitheater came on the eve of a deadly mass shooting at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, where a man carrying a Ruger AR rifle killed 26 people and wounded 20 others.

San Bernardino was also the site of a 2015 mass shooting and terrorist attack in which 15 people were killed.

Manson performed the song while sitting in a wheelchair after he suffered a broken ankle during an onstage accident in September.
