Ashley Walters v. Marilyn Manson (Part Three - 2021 Media Features of Ashley Walters)

In 2021, Ashley Walters was featured in three media articles to supplement her statements and lawsuit against her former boss, Marilyn Manson. It seems that besides their social media statements, each of Manson's main accusers worked out deals to be featured by the media in various ways. Ashley Walters was featured twice by The Cut (Feb. 10, 2021 and May 18, 2021) and once by Rolling Stone (Nov. 14, 2021). Here we will explore each one. 1. The Cut (Feb. 10, 2021) This story was titled " Marilyn Manson ‘Almost Destroyed Me’: Game of Thrones actress Esmé Bianco says her relationship with the singer left her with physical scars and PTSD ". It was written by Angelina Chapin, who since this article has written five more articles on the Manson cases for The Cut . This one in particular focuses on Esme Bianco's accusations against Manson, but supplemented by the testimony of her close friend Ashley Walters, who is named 20 times in this article. 4 of the 20 times Ashley W

Ashley Walters v. Marilyn Manson (Part Two - An Analysis of her February 1, 2021 Statement)

              ...continued from part one.   It appears that Ashley Walters remained relatively quiet regarding her alleged abuse and anything that has to do with Marilyn Manson from March 2019 till February 1, 2021. Later we will find out that she was very much active during this time in regards to those things, but her first public statement about the abuse she allegedly suffered by her former employer Marilyn Manson came on the day Evan Rachel Wood first named her abuser. On February 1, 2021, Evan named Marilyn Manson as her abuser for the first time, and this was followed by others who made accusations of abuse and assault, many of whom coordinated before this time to issue their statements together on the same day. Among these women was Ashley Walters, a long-time friend of nearly all of Manson's accusers, who posted the statement above on her Instagram account, along with what appears to be three text messages from Marilyn Manson to Ashley Walters dating to January 6th and 7t

Ashley Walters v. Marilyn Manson (Part One - It All Begins With a Movement and a List)

    On March 11th 2019, Evan Rachel Wood and Esme Bianco launched the #IAmNotOK movement on social media, reminiscent of the #MeToo phenomenon from more than a year prior, to bring wide awareness to the upcoming decision on the Phoenix Act in California. The Phoenix Act was passed unanimously in the state of California a month later in April 2019 and it was passed into law by Governor Gavin Newsom on January 1, 2020. The hashtag was advertised as something to share on social media for people to be more vocal about the domestic violence they suffered. It's name stems from Evan's post in November 2016 on Twitter, when she first shared her rape stories in a letter to Rolling Stone , and included the hashtag #NotOk. Over the next few days in mid-March 2019, other women would share their story, including some celebrities recruited by Evan and Esme, using the hashtag #IAmNotOK. It was on March 12th 2019 that Ashley Walters, former personal assistant of Marilyn Manson from August 2010

A Star Is Born: How a Deceptive Underage Girl Led Marilyn Manson to the Creation of his "First Real Song"

Watching the news this morning, I heard the announcement that televangelist Pat Robertson has died at the age of 93, while New York City is experiencing the worst air quality ever in its history and currently around the world due to the massive Canadian wildfires. Putting the two together, it reminded me of an interesting story from Marilyn Manson's autobiography The Long Hard Road Out of Hell . Manson's autobiography is often cited out of context by his accusers and critics to prove how horrible of a monster he is (not just was , but is ), yet they very conveniently overlook the stories that contradict their accusations. One of these stories took place in 1990, when Manson was in Manhattan, just as he was beginning to play live shows in South Florida with the Spooky Kids. How he ended up in Manhattan and what came out of that trip are both fascinating, but he describes it as "a disastrous trip to Manhattan during which I wrote my first real song." This is how Manson
