This Sunday, August 29, Kanye West released the album Donda. A real surprise for his fans, the release of this tenth album arouses astonishment, but also creates controversy and arouses the anger of certain personalities, because of the artists present on the tracklist.
On the occasion of the album’s third public listening, which took place in Chicago, Kanye West invited Marilyn Manson on stage to perform the track Jail 2 on which he features in the studio version. As a reminder, Evan Rachel Woods shared the life of Marilyn Manson from 2007 to 2010, and accuses the singer of repeated rape and harassment. Several former companions of Marilyn Manson claim to have lived the same ordeal as the young woman.
Out of the question for the Westworld actress to remain indifferent to what she considers humiliation. During a concert she gives in Hollywood on the weekend of August 29, she performs the title You Get What You Give by the New Radicals: “I have waited, but this occasion seems appropriate to me”
Kanye West’s album: a “slap in the face” for several victims?
In this tube from the 1990s, the name of Marilyn Manson is mentioned (“Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson / Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson”), and Evan Rachel Woods does not hesitate to raise his middle finger at the time of the famous passage, under applause from the audience.

The scene having been filmed, the actress did not hesitate to post the extract of the video on Instagram, with a caption for the attention of the other victims: “For the other survivors who took a slap in the face this week. I love you. Don’t give up. “
Among the artists present in the Donda album, Marilyn Manson is not the only one not to be unanimous: The rapper DaBaby, present on the same track, was also on the Chicago stage. His presence aroused the anger of several people and for good reason: the rapper had been pinned a few weeks ago for homophobic remarks, as well as words stigmatizing HIV-positive people.
This homophobic scandal had earned him the boycott of several artists like Dua Lipa, or deprogramming in several festivals like Lollapalooza.
