According to the Los Angeles television station KTLA, Marilyn Manson wrote the words “fuck you” over his mouth and chin while walking through security at Los Angeles International Airport on Friday (August 11).
The singer, who was wearing mirrored sunglasses, a black hat and a raincoat and was accompanied by his girlfriend, Lindsay Usich, scribbled the obscenity in black ink in an apparent failed attempt to keep paparazzi from taking photographs.
A witness who stood in the same line at the airport offered the following description of what transpired via the social news web site Reddit: “I just went through the LAX security line with Marilyn Manson. He had ‘FUCK’ scrawled in large letters across the bottom half of his face, with what appeared to be a grease pencil.”
“As we each removed our boots in the security line, he kindly explained that it was not directed at me or anyone else in the airport, but rather at the paparazzi, so that they couldn’t sell any photos of him that they took.”
“He was really apologetic about it, and covered his mouth around young children while apologizing to their parents for exposing their child to profanity.”
