The Trump Curse has claimed another victim, and in this case it happened in particularly spectacular fashion.
The viral video of 48-year-old shock rocker Marilyn Manson getting crushed by a stage prop at the Hammerstein Ballroom made headlines over the weekend, and things don’t appear to be getting better for the music cuck any time soon.
Manson cancelled 9 concerts from October 2 in Boston to October 14 in Houston, according to the his official rep. He will be taking time off to recover at his home in Los Angeles, and would be well-advised to use the time for some soul-searching and introspection about whether to continue making our ears bleed for the rest of his life.
Manson, who bears the much duller birth name of Brian Hugh Warner, briefly made the headlines last November for a music video that depicted the beheading of President Donald Trump.
The incident, which was obviously gauged for publicity and shock value, did not gather as much viral steam as other similar acts by people like Snoop Dogg, Kathy Griffin, and Johnny Depp. Perhaps this was due to the Manson brand of edginess becoming dull and less relevant in recent years, as another Hollywood leftist making violent political statements is hardly news within the current political paradigm.
Regardless, many have mused that Manson’s recent accident is another example of the “Trump Curse,” a supernatural phenomenon theorized by 4chan’s /pol/ that gained new traction after the death of communist dictator Fidel Castro.
According to the theory, high-profile celebrities who come out and make retarded statements about President Trump are destined to receive major negative consequences in the form of a career setback, personal tragedy, or both.
The “Trump Curse” has been uncannily accurate with many high-profile celebrity deaths in the past, though many have chalked this up to the whole of Hollywood and the business elite being generally rotten, anti-Trump scum and not some supernatural phenomena.
Regardless, Marilyn Manson will not be making any political statements onstage for some time to come.
