Former House actress Charlyne Yi has accused Marilyn Manson of harassing women and making racist remarks to her during a visit to the set of the show. Yi made the remarks on a now-deleted Twitter, according to the Hollywood Reporter.


“Ugh, don’t even get me started on Marilyn Manson,” Yi reportedly wrote on account. “Yes this happened a long time ago — on the last season of House he came on set to visit because he was a huge fan of the show and he harassed just about every woman asking us if we were going to scissor, rhino & called me a China man.”

The final season of House aired in 2012. In a second tweet, Yi reportedly expressed concern at publishing her experiences and subsequently being "tied" to the harasser. “It’s so triggering to see people come up on the internet who have harassed you. And then when you talk about the incidents you become known as the person tied to the harasser,” she wrote. “And that’s just your name from now on. It almost overrides who you are.”

In October 2017 Yi accused comedian David Cross of being racist towards her, a claim Cross denied. Manson, meanwhile, was forced to fire bass player Twiggy Ramirez after he was accused of raping ex-girlfriend Jessicka Adams.

The FADER has contacted reps for both Yi and Manson.
