Marilyn Manson made a decision yesterday, following accusations of rape against her bassist: he will no longer work with him.
Twiggy Ramirez, whose real name is Jeordie White, is accused of sexual assault by his former spouse. The event would have occurred in the 90s, while the musician was playing with Nine Inch Nails.
For her part, Marilyn Manson did not know this story. Once informed, he decided to break all ties with the alleged rapist.
Here’s what he wrote on Twitter last night:
I have decided to part ways with Jeordie White as a member of Marilyn Manson. He will be replaced for the upcoming tour. I wish him well.

” I decided to stop working with Jeordie White and kick him out of Marilyn Manson. He will be replaced for the upcoming tour. I wish him good luck for the future. “
Marilyn Manson admitted that he did not know and feel deeply ” saddened by the obvious distress of the victim “.
