In an Instagram post made at the time, Wood wrote: “My abuser’s name is Brian Warner also known to the world as Marilyn Manson. He started treating me when I was a teenager and abused horribly for years I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission I ended up living in fear of retaliation, slander or blackmail I am here to expose this dangerous man and call out the many industries that enabled it, before it ruins other lives. I stand with the many of the victims who will not be silent any longer.”
