How the abuse allegations against Marilyn Manson affected his radio airplay and streaming?
According to Billboard, Marilyn Manson‘s latest single, “Don’t Chase The Dead”, has fallen off Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart, a week after several women came forward accusing the rocker of abuse and assault.
As for Manson‘s total on-demand streams, they were up 7% in the week ending February 4 to 6 million. His digital sales reached 2,000, a 40% increase.
On February 1, actress Evan Rachel Wood claimed in a social media post that Manson “groomed” and “horrifically” abused her for years. After she shared her accusations, at least four other women posted their own allegations against the singer. The women claimed to have endured “sexual assault, psychological abuse, and/or various forms of coercion, violence, and intimidation” at the hands of Manson.
