WARNING: Some may find the following video disturbing.
Marilyn Manson released a sneak peek of the video “Say10” which some say depicts Donald Trump being brutally slaughtered, a theory with which Manson neither agreed or disagreed.
The video, which was released on the eve of the U.S. presidential election, shows Manson flipping through a Bible before tossing it to the side and the camera pans out to show a bloodied, beheaded man in a suit and red tie. At the very end, there is a slight glimpse of the murdered man’s head, whose hair bears a strong resemblance to the Trumpster’s.
But when asked if the man in the video was supposed to represent Trump, Manson said, “Either way tomorrow goes, the visuals are meant to create contemplation. Because it’s obviously bigger than just tomorrow. It’s about the desperate acts of people who believe something that is preached by an unbeliever.”
Manson further elaborated, ”Right now we’re in such a state of confusion when it comes to religion, politics, sexuality, and how they all tie together, and it’s being turned into a circus and a sideshow – and that’s something that I’ve been described as a ringleader of. It seems like a time for me as an artist, and as an American artist, to make something that causes a new set of questions to arise that aren’t simply statements.”
Manson’s album will be released in February.
