Marilyn Manson Points Fake Rifle At San Bernardino Concert

Marilyn Manson has shocked concertgoers in San Bernadino, California after he pulled out a fake semi-automatic rifle and pretended to spray the crowd with bullets.

Manson is known for his shocking antics, however, he is now being described as having a lack of empathy after the stunt seemed to mock the horrific terror attack that occurred in the city less than two years ago.

The incident also came mere hours after a mad gunman shot and killed 26 people at a church in Texas and just a month after the devastating Las Vegas shooting that took place at a country music festival.

In footage obtained by TMZ, Manson can be seen aiming the prop at the crowd, while singing his song 'We know where You F***ing Live'. The drummer also simulated the sound of gunfire by pounding on the instrument.

In December 2015, 14 people were killed and 22 others were injured during a mass shooting at the Southern California city's Inland Regional Center after a married couple went on a rampage.

However, the San Bernardino Sun newspaper are reporting that most of the audience was not offended by the stunt, while some people found it "lame".

Marilyn Manson's performance on Sunday local time was part of the Knotfest music festival.
