Marilyn Manson has been removed from two television shows after actress Evan Rachel Wood and four other women came forward with abuse allegations against the rocker on Monday.
Manson, whose real name is Brian Warner, released a statement on Monday denying the accusations, calling Woods’ claims of sexual and physical abuse against him “horrible distortions.”
Starz announced Monday that it “stands unequivocally with all victims and survivors of abuse,” and therefore has removed the upcoming episode on its “American Gods” series featuring Manson.
“Due to the allegations made against Marilyn Manson, we have decided to remove his performance from the remaining episode he is in, scheduled to air later this season,” the network confirmed on the TV show’s verified Twitter account.

“Obviously, my art and my life have long been magnets for controversy, but these recent claims about me are horrible distortions of reality,” he said. “My intimate relationships have always been entirely consensual with like-minded partners.”
He concluded: “Regardless of how – and why – others are now choosing to misrepresent the past, that is the truth.”
After Wood shared her own accusations, at least four other women posted their own allegations against Manson in a show of solidarity, Vanity Fair reported. The women claimed they have endured “sexual assault, psychological abuse, and/or various forms of coercion, violence, and intimidation.” The outlet noted Manson has denied similar allegations in the past.
