American actress and musician Evan Rachel Wood has seemingly responded to Kanye West's collaboration with Marilyn Manson on his 10th album Donda, bringing the alleged rapist on stage during a stadium listening party.
The Westworld star is one of many women that have come forward with horrifying abuse allegations towards Manson this year.
Hours after the release of Donda, Wood posted a video covering 'You Only Get What You Give' by The New Radicals at a recent show of hers, with the caption "For my fellow survivors who got slapped in the face this week. I love you. Don’t give up."

Wood was engaged to Manson in January 2010, but the relationship ended seven months later.
Going public with the abuse, she says occurred during that time; she wrote in February that "The name of my abuser is Brian Warner, also known to the world as Marilyn Manson.
"He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years. I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission. I am done living in fear of retaliation, slander, or blackmail. I am here to expose this dangerous man and call out the many industries that have enabled him before he ruins any more lives. I stand with the many victims who will no longer be silent.”
Manson has denied this and all other allegations against him, including moving to dismiss a lawsuit from Game of Thrones actress Esmé Bianco for sexual assault and battery. Three other women have filed similar suits against the shock rocker.
Due to the allegations, he has been dropped by his record label and edited out of the tv shows American Gods and Creepshow.
