Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland, used to play guitar in Marilyn Manson’s band back in 2009, before rejoining with Limp Bizkit. Borland revealed on a podcast last night that Manson is “not a great guy”.
During the livestream that took place on SpaceZebraWorld Twitch account, Borland interjected to quickly discuss the Marilyn Manson abuse allegations.
Shout out to MetalSucks for the translation:
“Can I say something right now, real quick?
“Marilyn Manson… I was in the band for nine months. He’s not a great guy. Every single thing that people have said about him is fucking true. So relax about the allegations towards the women… like when people say [bad things about] these women that are coming after him right now… fuck off, they are speaking the truth.
“I’m sorry to everyone on this podcast right now who doesn’t like this. But that guy, he’s amazingly talented, but he’s fucked up and he needs to be put in check and he needs to get sober and he needs to come to terms with his demons. He is a bad fucking guy.
“I was there when he was with Evan Rachel Wood, I was at his house, it’s not fucking cool. That’s all I’m gonna say about it.
“If anyone is coming after these girls and going like, ‘You blah blah blah, this and that,’ fuck you, that’s all I’m gonna say.
“Sorry to take this to a dark place, but that guy is canceled, goodbye, don’t let the door hit you on the way out.”
There was some back and forth amongst everyone before he continued:
“He tried to choke me out on stage and I flipped him over and knocked the breath out of him. He’s not a great guy. Goodbye.
“My apologies. I was the biggest fan and [now] I am not.”
When Borland exited the band he claims it was due to creative differences and said “It’s the Marilyn Manson show over there.”
