When it comes to Marilyn Manson, fans know to expect the unexpected, now the paparazzi can join that club too. During a recent trip to California’s Los Angeles International Airport on Aug. 10 Manson decided to write a few choice words across his own face in an effort to outwit the paparazzi.

According to reports, Manson entered the airport sporting a black hat, a black raincoat, mirrored sunglasses, and his face and neck adorned with the words ‘F— YOU’ scribbled on them in large black letters. He held girlfriend Lindsay Usich’s hand and walked through the airport.

A witness who landed in the same security line as Manson, shared the experience on Reddit, saying, “I just went through the LAX security line with Marilyn Manson. He had “F— YOU” scrawled in large letters across the bottom half of his face, with what appeared to be a grease pencil.”

However, the witness said that Manson was very polite, explaining, “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 continued, “He was really apologetic about it, and covered his mouth around young children while apologizing to their parents for exposing their child to profanity.”

Unfortunately if Manson’s sole goal was to thwart the paparazzi, he was not successful. Photos from the airport are already available online for purchase. Manson also posted a self-portrait of his own fancy face work on Twitter with the caption “Re-LAX. If you are close enough to read this…” The NSFW photo can be seen here. and additional NSFW photos from the airport can be seen here.

Marilyn Manson’s latest single ‘Slo-Mo-Tion’ is set to be released next week.
