Limp Bizkit’s Wes Borland On Marilyn Manson’s Abuse Allegations: “Every Single Thing That People Have Said About Him Is F*cking True”


Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland has commented on the multiple allegations of abuse that have been leveled against Marilyn Manson by several women, including Manson‘s ex-fiancée, actress Evan Rachel Wood. Borland briefly served as a touring guitarist for Manson back in 2008-2009. Appearing on Space Zebra, Borland said of Manson:

Marilyn Manson… I was in the band for nine months. He’s not a great guy. And every single thing that people have said about him is fucking true. So relax about the allegations towards the women… Like when people [say bad things about] these women that are coming after him right now… Fuck off. They are speaking the truth. And I’m sorry to everyone on this podcast right now who doesn’t like this, but that guy — he’s amazingly talented, but he’s fucked up and he needs to be put in check and he needs to get sober and he needs to come to terms with his demons. He is a bad fucking guy.”

He continued:

“I was there when he was with Evan Rachel Wood. I was at his house. It’s not fucking cool. And that’s all I’m gonna say about it. So if anyone is coming after these girls and going, like, ‘You blah blah blah, this and that,’ fuck you. That’s all I’m gonna say.”

“Sorry to take this to a dark place, but that guy is canceled. Goodbye. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.”

Manson stands accused of sexual assault, grooming, mental abuse, violence and more. While Manson himself has since denied the allegations, the response to them has been immediate. His record label Loma Vista Recordings have dropped him, as has his talent agency, while two of his TV roles have also been scrapped.

Furthermore, California State Senator Susan Rubio has urged the Acting Attorney General of the United States Monty Wilkinson and FBI director Christopher Wray to open an investigation into Manson over the accusations.
