With his vampish pallor and supernatural appearance, it’s hard to believe Marilyn Manson would ever really die without some sort of holy-water based ritual.
However, fans were shaken to their core when people started posting photo tributes to the iconic singer, with the caption ‘RIP Charles Manson’.
Yes, people were getting rock star Marilyn Manson – real name Brian Warner – mixed up with notorious cult leader and murderer Charles Manson, who died of natural causes yesterday at the age of 83.
Brian Warner took the stage name Marilyn Manson as a composite of two iconic American figures – Marilyn Monroe and Charles Manson.
Charles Manson was the leader of a deadly cult, who manipulated his members into murdering pregnant actress Sharon Tate and six other people in 1969.
Some people are therefore not happy about ‘RIP Charles Manson’ trending on Twitter – worrying about how this dangerous man is being romanticised.
One person said, ‘y’all saying rip charles manson like he wasn’t out murdering people’.
48-year-old Marilyn Manson is currently alive, and still causing mayhem with his controversial music.
