KTLA (a Los Angeles TV station), shock rocker Marilyn Manson wrote the words "fuck you" over his mouth and chin as he strolled through security at LAX this Friday, August 10th.
Manson was wearing a black hat, with raincoat and mirrored sunglasses, and was accompanied by Lindsay Usich (Manson't girlfriend). After being harassed by paparazzi, Manson decided to scribble the obscenity in black ink in a failed attempt to keep paparazzi from taking photographs.
According to the social news web site Reddit, a witness who was in the same security line as Manson had this to say about the incident: "I just went through the LAX security line with Marilyn Manson. He had 'FUCK' scrawled in large letters across the bottom half of his face, with what appeared to be a grease pencil."
"As we each removed our boots in the security line, he kindly explained that it was not directed at me or anyone else in the airport, but rather at the paparazzi, so that they couldn't sell any photos of him that they took."
"He was really apologetic about it, and covered his mouth around young children while apologizing to their parents for exposing their child to profanity."
This is a Tweet from Manson:
