Bianca Allaine Kyne Issues Statement Attempting to Spin a Recent Court Loss Into a Victory

A little over a week ago I wrote about a significant partial dismissal granted to Marilyn Manson on July 2nd in the lawsuit issued by Bianca Allaine Kyne. First, it stated that Manson's motion to dismiss all allegations in Kyne's complaint referencing sexual abuse as a minor in 1995 when she was 16 years old was granted. Second, any reference to Kyne's own personal drawings of Manson from when she was 16 are to be removed. Third, Kyne is therefore ordered to make a Second Amended Complaint within 30 days removing all of the above. Despite this significant victory of Marilyn Manson in managing to get a partial dismissal in this case, on July 15th Bianca Allaine Kyne and her lawyer Jeff Anderson decided to issue statements spinning their loss into a victory. They argue that since Manson was not granted a full dismissal (which he was not seeking), then he lost and they won in this particular ruling. What Was the Ruling on July 2nd?   When you read the ruling issued on July

How Evan Rachel Wood and Her Supporters Use Coercion and Bullying To Gain Support

A Few Words on Cancel Culture

For most of human history, shunning, excommunication, and public humiliation have been used for social conformity. The modern versions are generally categorized as “calling-out” or “canceling.” While the first use of these terms is not certain, sometime in the early 2010s, "fans" of various celebrities and groups began to post on social media, identifying imperfections in their "idols" and “calling them out” on their behaviors. During 2017 and 2018, online posts calling out others drastically increased and were part of the #MeToo and #BlackLivesMatter movements. By 2019, the term "cancel culture" became more known and moved into mainstream media usage.

Cancel culture has been considered acceptable by some people in some cases because it seemed to provide a way for marginalized individuals and groups to silence someone they deemed hurtful. As a result, powerful individuals or groups that would otherwise evade responsibility for their destructive behaviors would be exposed and face the consequences.

On the other hand, cancel culture has been called a negative, even toxic way of simplifying complex issues and encouraging snap judgments that can easily result in overly harsh consequences in less offensive situations.

Some high-profile instances (Bill Cosby, Harvey Weinstein) can lead to the assumption that calling out on social media is a useful tool for change. While individuals in these cases may suffer (well-deserved) consequences, there is not a great deal of evidence that such a tactic leads to positive social change overall.

Former President Obama urged caution in using social media call-out culture when speaking at an Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago in October 2019. Cancel culture, Obama said, supports a simplistic worldview and promotes the idea that a person is no better than the worst choice they ever made. The “demand for purity” and lack of tolerance for ambiguity are unrealistic. In a classic understatement, Obama said, “The world is messy ... People who do really good stuff have flaws.”

Using social media to cancel someone, however, does not make room for flaws or messiness. Canceling prevents any exchange of opinions or investigation of the truth, even when that would be appropriate or necessary.

Cancel culture is undeniably toxic when it involves criminal threats, invasion of privacy (doxing), or driving a person to suicide. People might wish to believe it will effect positive social change. The nature of so many comments on social media seems to indicate otherwise.

The only undeniable consequence of cancel culture will be to leave ourselves vulnerable to undue influence in the social arena from bad actors who have only their interests in mind. They are the ones who are attempting to create an authoritarian dictatorship.

Evan Rachel Wood and Her Use of Coercive Control

Coercive Control is a form of abuse that uses intimidation, threats, coercion, bullying and/or humiliation to gain control over someone or something. Evan Rachel Wood has been an outspoken critic of Coercive Control when it comes to abuse against women, and has accused Marilyn Manson of being one of its perpetrators in a cult-like fashion. Whether or not her claim is true is a topic for another time, but what we do know is true is that Evan Rachel Wood herself has been a perpetrator of Coercive Control in many ways herself.

One need only look at her custody battle with ex-husband Jaime Bell to see how outright her coercive control is. During her custody battle, she produced a forged FBI letter to try and convince Jaime Bell that it was absolutely necessary to isolate their son in a state thousands of miles away from him to keep their child safe from alleged threats by Marilyn Manson and his fans whom she generally described without any evidence as “extreme Satanists, pedophiles and Nazis who helped him to kidnap, abuse and ritually torture different people.”

“I frankly don’t understand what’s going on,” insisted Jamie Bell. “Either Evan’s claims that she is receiving ‘death threats’ are true and our son is not safe in her care, or they are not true and she is hiding our son from me for other reasons of her own invention.”

Such control was also used toward her own son, who is reported by Jaime Bell to be too afraid to do things in public for fear that a monster named Brian (Marilyn Manson) will do bad things to him.

Evan Rachel Wood and Her Supporters Use Coercion and Bullying To Gain Support

Evan named Marilyn Manson as her abuser on February 1, 2021, after five years of publicly attacking him without specifically naming him in order to gain sympathy and support. It was designed to be an all out assault of multiple people carefully planned by Evan and her girlfriend at the time, Illma Gore, who is an experienced grifter and slanderer of Donald Trump and his supporters.

This is when the extreme bullying and coercion by Evan and her supporters really began. In anticipation of and as a result of this bullying, Marilyn Manson was dropped by his management, his record company, and all the television and movie deals he was involved with. He has now sued her and Illma Gore partly for the distress this and other similar things has caused him.

A clearer example could be observed by those who followed the events at the time and remember that Marilyn Manson quickly began to lose celebrity friends and followers over the next few days on his Instagram account. This was primarily because of the threats and bullying they received from Evan's supporters, who demanded they both unfollow Manson and make a statement against him. One example of this was Norman Reedus, who had just starred in a video with Manson and was good friends with him. In one of the replies to Evans's Instagram message, an individual referenced that Manson was a close friend of Reedus's and questioned if Reedus had ever heard Manson use the "n-word" or other derogatory phrases/comments. Not long after, Reedus responded by denying that anything like that was said around him: "Wow. And for the record i [sp] would never allow anything like that around me. Ever!" Despite this, Reedus continued to be harassed and eventually stopped following Manson on Instagram.

Similar examples of this bullying and coercion can be seen with Taylor Momsen, Asia Argento and Alison Mosshart, among many others. Despite statements of support by people like Taylor Momsen and Asia Argento, it is reported that they were harassed so much, that in order to quiet things down they eventually unfollowed Manson on Instagram. Alison Mosshart received literally hundreds of such messages from Evan's supporters, so that despite her hanging on for a while, she eventually unfollowed Manson as well. And every time these celebrities unfollowed Manson, it was viewed as a victory by Evan's supporters and interpreted as a show of support for Manson's victims. Even if Evan's supporters spotted celebrities posting a photo with Manson in it, they commented on it relentlessly to have it taken down, and often it would be taken down, which they interpreted as another victory.

This harassment was even revealed on Whitney Cummings podcast from February 25, 2021, where comedian Chelcie Lynn was called out for wearing a Marilyn Manson t-shirt on the show. At the 13 second mark of this video, Whitney's co-host warns her of what was to come: "No, you'll just get those dm's, 'Why are you still following him?'" Whitney confirms she also got a bunch of those dm's. I had personally noticed Whitney Cummings following Manson for a few weeks after the allegations, but suddenly she gave up and unfollowed him.

Dita Von Teese and Rose McGowan

In the past few days, both Marilyn Manson's ex-wife Dita Von Teese and his ex-fiance Rose McGowan have separately come out publicly against the harassment and bullying they received nearly two years ago to make a statement against Marilyn Manson, right after Evan called him out by name as her abuser. However, at the time, both of them responded that what Evan and the other women who came forward described as abusive experiences with Manson was something they themselves never experienced. But because they were being coerced to make a statement by Evan's followers (and PR firm?), they naturally voiced support for Evan Rachel Wood to be allowed to voice what she described as her experience, despite their experiences being very different. Now, almost two years later, Dita and Rose have both come forward with stories of the hardcore pressure they received to voice their support for Evan and her fellow accusers. Dita's comments could be heard in the podcast linked and transcribed here and Colonel Kurtz has published a video with McGowan's comments from December 20, 2022, below:


All of the above can be most recently seen in the comments section alone of the Instagram account of Kat Von D, who just recently wrote a strong statement of support of her friend Marilyn Manson, with whom she is collaborating on new music. Kat Von D has proven to be a steadfast supporter, and has expressed that she doesn't care about the backlash, which is really the only attitude that will defeat cancel culture.

Just before this, when Jeordie White's ex-wife Laney Chantal died on October 31st, Evan made multiple posts in her Instagram stories about her and her love for her, and once again, as she has done in the past, in an ill-timed and disgusting move, this time she targeted Jeordie White (formerly known as Twiggy Ramirez) in at least three cryptic messages shaming him for not speaking out against Manson and calling him out as a rapist (even though Laney always supported Jeordie against these accusations).
On December 19th, Evan posted the following story on her Instagram:

I reposted this story, noting that Evan Rachel Wood is the queen of shamers and that she should be ashamed of herself. Over the years, Evan has called out numerous people on social media, and it has often received both media attention as well as backlash. The backlash came to the point when in 2020, before she came out against Marilyn Manson, she tried to win the support of Rose McGowan by being the only person to back her comments against the democratic party, and after this backlash she canceled her Twitter account. Before this, she had received backlash for her disgusting and ill-timed comments against Kobe Bryant on the day he tragically died. Shaming is part of who Evan is, to the point where she shamelessly made a documentary about Marilyn Manson to make him look like a cult-leader and herself as one of his innocent victims and heroic survivors, presenting absolutely no evidence and relying on unfounded hearsay that was clearly manipulated. Her supporters have imitated her tactics to make it appear as much as possible that Evan and her fellow accusers have a large support system that makes her accusations undeniable. And even if it may appear this way, the undeniable truth is that Evan Rachel Wood and her supporters often use coercion and bullying to gain support, and though this may give an appearance of victory short-term, in the long-term it will surely fizzle.
