Love Island sparks outrage with ‘distasteful’ Marilyn Manson music choice as he faces sex assault allegations

LOVE Island has sparked outrage amongst fans after they opened the show with a Marilyn Manson song.

The music choice – his version of Tainted Love – is somewhat controversial as the musician has been accused of sexual assault, which he vehemently denies.

Game Of Thrones star Esme Bianco claimed he electrocuted and cut her in a horror rape in court documents.

According to the lawsuit, the 52-year-old hitmaker also engaged in human trafficking when he "employed fraud" in bringing British actress Bianco to the US to appear in a music video for his song, I Want to Kill You Like They Do in the Movies.

His lawyers said the claims were a contrived "plot" to gain cash and discredit him.

Esme was one of the many women who spoke out against the musician.

His ex Evan Rachel Wood, 33, publicly named him on Instagram and said he began "grooming" her when she was a teenager and "horrifically abused me for years".

Manson has described the allegations as "horrible distortions of reality".

Those watching last night’s Love Island clocked the song choice and took to Twitter to discuss it.

One person wrote: “Bit distasteful playing Marilyn Manson… especially on a show about love #LoveIsland #LoveIslandUK.”

A second added: “Marilyn Manson???? Did they not get the memo????? #LoveIsland pls ffs no.”

While another tweeted: “Starting the episode on Marilyn Manson. Controversial. #LoveIsland.”

It’s not the first time the music options have raised eyebrows – they used Jay-Z and Kanye's West's N****s in Paris to soundtrack a preview of Danny Bibby in the villa after he was embroiled in a race row.
