The 'Slo-Mo-Tion' rocker surprises fans after taking out a meat cleaver and pretending to slash his wrist shortly after dedicating song 'Disposable Teens' to the daughter of Michael Jackson.
Marilyn Manson gave Paris Jackson a shout-out. The 44-year-old rocker reportedly dedicated his song "Disposable Teens" to the daughter of the late Michael Jackson during his concert at the Los Angeles' Gibson Amphitheatre on Thursday night, May 7.
"This song is for Paris Jackson," Manson said. The dedication came a few days after Jackson tried to commit suicide. The 15-year-old girl slashed her wrist with a meat cleaver after her family reportedly wouldn't allow her to attend Manson's concert.
The rocker shocked the concert attendees when he took out a meat cleaver and pretended to draw it across his wrist. However, the act was criticized by The Samaritans, a charity that helps people with suicidal thoughts.
Executive Director Alan Ross told MailOnline, "Everyone in the suicide prevention field agrees that graphic depiction of self-harm is a provocative act that does impact people who are in distress in a manner that is very counter-productive and harmful. Even in creative environments there should be some sense of social responsibility that is aware of the impact of actions and messages."
Previously, Manson told Jackson that she was welcomed to attend his concerts. He said in a statement, " I hope you feel better. You will be on my guest list anytime you want."
Jackson was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital after allegedly attempting to end her life on Wednesday, June 5. In addition to slashing her wrist, she took 20 Motrin pills.
