“I have been vocal over the years about my dislike of Manson as a person and cut ties with him nearly 25 years ago,” Reznor mentioned in an announcement by way of Pitchfork. “As I said at the time, the passage from Manson’s memoir is a complete fabrication. I was infuriated and offended back when it came out and remain so today.”

In a 2009 interview with Mojo, Reznor known as his former protégé Manson “a dopey clown.” “He is a malicious guy and will step on anybody’s face to succeed and cross any line of decency,” Reznor mentioned. “Seeing him now, drugs and alcohol now rule his life and he’s become a dopey clown.”

Following the abuse allegations, Manson was dropped by his report label and reserving agent. On Monday night, Manson denied the accusations, writing on Instagram, “My intimate relationships have always been entirely consensual with like-minded partners. Regardless of how — and why — others are now choosing to misrepresent the past, that is the truth.”
