A video has surfaced of Marilyn Manson being a giant pissbaby, repeatedly telling a fan to remove his Avenged Sevenfold shirt after being invited on stage. Manson was performing before Avenged Sevenfold at the Spain leg of Download Festival.

“You should take your shirt off,” the musician told the confused fan. “It’s not my band, it’s a different band.”

Manson has a reputation for bizarre and offensive behaviour, from pissing in Korn’s catering to having on stage meltdowns. This latest incident comes as no surprise, but is pretty unfortunate for the poor fan who was clearly uncomfortable with the turn of events.

It’s not the first time

The incident reminiscent of the time KISS made an interviewer change out of his Iron Maiden shirt before their interview began. “I picked this shirt specially – it’s not cool to wear a KISS t-shirt to interview KISS” the interviewer responded. Apparently, the band disagreed quite vehemently. You can watch the awkward encounter below:

Typical rockstar behaviour? Or just plain old asshole behaviour?
