Evan Rachel Wood Responds to Marilyn Manson's 'Donda' Appearance
"For my fellow survivors who got slapped in the face this week. I love you."
Published Sep 01, 2021When Kanye West brought out Marilyn Manson at his Donda listening party last week, many people were understandably horrified that the rapper was giving a platform to a man facing numerous accusations of rape and abuse. Now, actor Evan Rachel Wood has responded to the incident — with a middle finger.
On Saturday night (August 28), Wood took the stage at Hollywood, CA's Bourbon Room to perform a stripped-down cover of "You Get What You Give" by the New Radicals. That song names Marilyn Manson in the lyrics — and when Wood got to that line, she raised a middle finger.
She shared a recording of the performance on Instagram and wrote, "For my fellow survivors who got slapped in the face this week. I love you. Don't give up."
Earlier this year, Wood released a statement saying, "The name of my abuser is Brian Warner, also known to the world as Marilyn Manson. He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years. I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission." Manson has since been sued by four women accusing him of abuse.
