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. – AskReddit, “what bizarre celebrity encounters have you had?” (link swiped from Boing Boing.net)
I’m sorry to call bullshit on the above story, but I once ran into a boot-removing Jeff Kent at LAX who told me the exact same explanation about “FUCK” being scrawled on his face in eye-liner. Surely Marilyn Manson doesn’t deserve to be defamed in this fashion (or associated with Jeff Kent).
