RT: Orthodox activists ‘confront’ Marilyn Manson band with eggs, holy water in Moscow

RT: Musicians of the iconic American rock band Marilyn Manson were reportedly pelted with eggs and sprinkled with holy water by Orthodox Christian activists ahead of the band’s Moscow concert. The gig was eventually delayed and canceled after a bomb threat.

Known for his controversial onstage performances deemed by some as offensive and anti-religious, Manson had already been faced with trouble during his current Russian tour, with mass protests taking place in the Siberian city of Novosibirsk, which later led to a canceled concert.

Manson-haters in Moscow also prepared a “warm welcome” for the singer and his band. The self-proclaimed defender of Russian Orthodox believers and leader of the “God’s Will” movement, Dmitry Enteo, celebrated a “victory” over the “blasphemous” rock band on his Twitter page on Friday. Enteo said that he and his fellow activists threw eggs and poured holy water on Manson and other band members.

“Pelted at with eggs, Manson was running away from me and was squealing like a pig as we were sprinkling him with holy water. You won’t believe it, he was making circles,” Enteo wrote.
