Marilyn Manson threatened to “rape” Black Dahlia Murder singer Trevor Strnad's face in a heated exchange in Florida, it's been reported.
Manson was hosting a meet-and-greet for fans in the sunshine state when Strnad apparently shouted “welcome to the freak show!” at him.
In response, Manson wrote “I hate those cunts” on a tablecloth before commenting he would like to “rape” Strnad's face.
According to the Daily Star, things culminated when Manson swung a punch forcing security at the store in intervene.
In a blog last month Manson posted a blog berating journalists, writing: "If one more 'journalist' makes a cavailier statement about me and my band, I will personally or with my fans' help greet them at their home and discover just how much they believe in their freedom of speech".
"I dare you all to write one more thing that you won’t say to my face. Because I will make you say it. In that manner. That is a threat."
