Marilyn Manson/BDM story debunked

Yes, we're aware how potentially stupid this news item is, and no, we have no idea if this actually happened. Regardless, UK tabloid Daily Star is reporting that Marilyn Manson threatened to rape The Black Dahlia Murder frontman Trevor Strnad amidst an altercation during a Florida meet-and-greet last week. The Daily Star reports: "The bloated rocker was doing a fan meet and greet signing as Black Dahlia Murder frontman Trevor Strnad joked 'welcome to the freak show' at him. Manson, 40, took offense and wrote 'I hate those c*nts' on the tablecloth in front of a worried fan. "Things got worse when Manson threatened to 'rape' Strnad's face, before taking a swing at him. Fortunately, security managed to get sensitive Manson out before he did himself a mischief." Update: Ok, not surprisingly, this story is bullshit. We checked with the band and for starters, it wasn't even Trevor that said anything, but another BDM member. Said member had the following to say, "Manson most likely didn't hear a word I said. We never even saw each other. You may just wanna take [the news item] down, since it's just an elephant of a story."
