Marilyn Manson Punched in the Face in Lethbridge

At a Denny’s, no less. And it must be true, since even the CBC is reporting on it.

Manson was reportedly punched in the face by a 21-year-old man at a Denny’s restaurant in Lethbridge, Alta., on Sunday morning around 2:30 a.m. after performing at the nearby Enmax Centre. (Insert your own “Grand Slam” pun here.)

Police confirmed to CTV News in Lethbridge that they were called to a disturbance at the Denny’s on Mayor Magrath Drive near that time, and that one victim had “suffered minor injuries.”


According to Manson’s manager, the artist had been eating at the restaurant when two young women approached him for a photo. Manson reportedly obliged, but a man soon came “out of nowhere” and “sucker punched” him in the face.

Manson’s manager also told TMZ that after being grabbed by security, the unnamed man began “screaming about blowing up Manson’s next concert.”

Beautiful people in Alberta, huh? TMZ has more.
