Phoebe Bridgers recalls Marilyn Manson's "rape room," condemns music industry's culture of silence


Singer-songwriter Phoebe Bridgers took to social media today to voice her solidarity with the growing list of women who have accused Marilyn Manson of abuse and share a disturbing Manson anecdote of her own.

In a tweet, Bridgers recalled, "I went to Marilyn Manson’s house when I was a teenager with some friends. I was a big fan. He referred to a room in his house as the 'rape room,' I thought it was just his horrible frat boy sense of humor. I stopped being a fan."

Bridgers, who makes her Saturday Night Live debut this weekend, also took to task the multiple individuals in Manson's orbit who stood silently by as he committed the alleged abuse. "The label knew, management knew, the band knew," she wrote. "Distancing themselves now, pretending to be shocked and horrified is fucking pathetic."
