Marilyn Manson Points Fake Rifle at San Bernardino Concert

Marilyn Manson Points Fake Rifle at San Bernardino Concert

The artist - whose shock-value antics have regularly garnered attention over the years - showcased the fake weapon as he sang his song "We Know Where You F--ing Live", pointing the prop toward the crowd as he sang from a microphone attached to the rifle, video obtained by TMZ shows.

On the same day 26 people were massacred at a Texas church and almost two years after 14 people died in the San Bernardino shooting, shock rock star Marilyn Manson pointed a fake rifle at the crowd during a concert in San Bernardino, California on Sunday night.

In 2015, Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik killed 14 people and wounded 20 others in a mass shooting in San Bernardino before being killed by police.

On Sunday, a gunman killed 26 people at a church in a San Antonio suburb before killing himself.

Manson, 48, was dressed as a hospital patient as he held the gun onstage, sitting in a wheelchair as he performed.

Manson has always been a controversial artist and he was infamously blamed for the 1999 Columbine High School shooting, which he rdcently admitted destroyed his career.

"Certain people blame me for the shootings at schools - I think my numbers are low, and hopefully they go up on (my upcoming) record", said Manson, according to New York Daily News.

'Honestly, the Columbine era destroyed my entire career at the time, ' he told The Guardian.
