Marilyn Manson in the News (May 4 - May 28, 2023)

May 9 - Anti-SLAPP Rulings Revealed and Why Marilyn Manson Has a Strong Case for an Appeal Anti-SLAPP laws work by putting more burden than usual on defamed plaintiffs like Manson, forcing them to clearly show at the outset that their case is legitimate. In California, the reason strict anti-SLAPP laws exist is because they have so many cases to go through, and it helps to alleviate the pressure of the courts by making cases less time consuming by eliminating certain aspects of a claim before they go to discovery. The major drawback of this is that a plaintiff must enter the case with all their evidence in hand when it comes to defamation claims even before discovery can be conducted. Thus, it makes it almost impossible for a defamation claim to pass into the discovery portion of the case unless the unquestionable evidence already clearly exists. In some cases, like Manson's, the intentional infliction of emotional distress claim can also be part of the anti-SLAPP.   Summary of the

Marilyn Manson in the News (September 12 - September 30, 2022)

 - Los Angeles District Attorney Gives Unexpected Update On the Marilyn Manson Case On September 12th I received a direct video response to a question I submitted on Evan Rachel Wood's birthday (September 7th - per her request through her Instagram stories) directly to the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office in their #AskTheDA series on Instagram. I figured since they weren't answering questions submitted to their website, maybe I can humor Evan and get a direct response from District Attorney George Gasc√≥n himself. And it worked! See the video below for his response:   Apparently it is a rare thing for the LA District Attorney to make such an announcement regarding such a case, which is why this story was reported everywhere: FOX LA , LA Times , Rolling Stone , Huffington Post , The Daily Beast , Metal Injection , Loudwire , among many others. It seemed as if every news outlet jumped at the chance to report how rare this was, adding to the fact that it was announced the

Why I Decided To Investigate the Marilyn Manson Case

Yesterday evening I was driving to a movie theatre to see a movie, when I came upon an accident involving a vehicle with a student driver and a traffic light pole. It was the funniest car accident I had ever seen, with a vehicle that said STUDENT DRIVER in the back crashed into a pole, just one block away from a police station. In itself, it was like something out of a comedy movie. As I was stopped at the traffic light watching two fire trucks and an ambulance on the scene, and the student driver with his teacher to the side unharmed, I couldn't help but laugh at the possible backstory my mind conjured up for the scene in front of me (sorry for the bad photo above, there were too many flashing lights everywhere and I was driving). I arrived at the movie theatre, a nearly century old favorite hang out of mine, to see for the sixth or seventh time on the big screen since it came out in 2007, the film Zodiac , which brilliantly tells the story of the unknown Zodiac killer, who operat

When Patricia Arquette Called Out Marilyn Manson on March 1, 2018

When Patricia Arquette won the best supporting actress statue for her role in Boyhood at the 2015 Oscars, she accepted her award with an empowering speech on women’s rights and equality. Since then, and especially after the rise of MeToo, she and her sister Rosanna Arquette have become very vocal activists on behalf of women and been very much criticized for targeting powerful white men, daily posting multiple tweets espousing left-wing liberalism and denouncing right-wing conservatism. In fact, Rosanna Arquette was one of the first women to come out against Harvey Weinstein in 2017 as a victim of his abuse, and all the way back in 2010, Rosanna Arquette became Goodwill Ambassador for The Womanity Foundation. With such a background, among many other similar things, it should be no surprise that it would be Patricia Arquette who would be the first to name Marilyn Manson as an abuser of Evan Rachel Wood. Patricia Arquette targeting Marilyn Manson as an abuser on March 1,

Marilyn Manson in the News (July 14 - September 10, 2022)

  Another long period of time has passed since I gave my last news update on all things Marilyn Manson, so I will briefly summarize the main stories since July 20th 2022 to keep everyone updated. The stories that may appear missing, especially the legal documents issued during this time, I hope to address separately. - Evan Rachel Wood's Social Media Meltdown (July 20-22, 2022) This news story deserved a whole article on its own, so if you want to read about it, see what I wrote here . As far as an update is concerned, as of September 10th 2022, Evan has resumed posting on Instagram (she only stopped for about a week or so), a little more sparingly, but she still can't resist having her voice heard, making people aware of how much she has suffered, and promoting her projects. However, Evan did have a busy summer with various projects and appearances, which could explain her silence for the most part. Her meltdown actually took place while she was in North Carolina, practicing
