Marilyn Manson Simulates Wrist-Slashing After Dedicating Song To Paris Jackson

Marilyn Manson made sure he put the "shock" in his "Shock Therapy" tour when he simulated slashing his wrists with a knife after dedicating a song to Paris Jackson.

On Thursday, Manson dedicated the song "Disposible Teens" to the 15-year-old who was hospitalized earlier this week after attempting suicide, reports TMZ.

The 44-year-old rocker used a knife attached to a microphone to simulate cutting himself, and while it's a prop he's used in past shows, the stunt made a bigger impact during Thurday's show.

Though the family has not made any statements as to what directly led to Jackson's hospitalization, TMZ reported that teen "threw a fit" because she wasn't allowed to attend Manson's concert. Following these reports, Manson told the website that Jackson had an open invitation to any of his shows.

And although Manson has performed the knife stunt before, it is now being called "harmful" by suicide prevention groups.

Alan Ross, executive director from Samaritans USA New York, told the Daily Mail:

"Everyone in the suicide prevention field agrees that graphic depiction of self-harm is a provocative act that does impact people who are in distress in a manner that is very counterproductive and harmful."

Ross added, "Even in creative environments there should be some sense of social responsibility that is aware of the impact of actions and messages."
