Marilyn Manson’s Lawyer Argues Videographer In Concert Spitting Case Consented To Potential Contact With His Bodily Fluids


Marilyn Manson‘s attorney Kent Barker has argued that the videographer who filed suit against his client after allegedly being spat upon and having his nose blown on her while filming Manson‘s August 19th, 2019 show in Gilford, NH consented to the contact of Manson‘s bodily fluids.

Barker put forth to the court that, “the defendant’s performance for the past twenty years are well known to include shocking and evocative antics similar to those that occurred here. The alleged victim consented to exposing herself to potential contact with sweat, saliva and phlegm in close quarters.”

The videographer in question, Susan Fountain, was employed by the venue and was broadcasting footage of the show as it took place to the big screens playing behind Manson at the time of the incident. Fountain would go on to file two misdemeanor simple assault charges against Manson, with an arrest warrant having been issued in October of 2019.

Manson would eventually turn himself in this past July regarding the charges and entered a not guilty plea this past September.

Footage of the incident in question was widely circulated online and can be found below.
