Manson Critics Cite Littleton
Critics of shock rocker Marilyn Manson want his next show — which is scheduled for tonight in Minneapolis — canceled in light of his possible appeal to the students who opened fire at Columbine High. “Manson’s message, which targets youth, is one of destruction, hopelessness and violence,” said Tom Prichard, president of the Minnesota Family Council. “It preys on vulnerable youth and may be just what causes some to take action.” Minneapolis Mayor Sharon Sayles Belton said Monday her office received hundreds of calls protesting the show. Manson had been set to headline a show in Denver on Friday, but the event was canceled by the sponsor, a radio station.
