Following last week's onstage meltdown from Marilyn Manson, actress Charlyne Yi (House, Steven Universe) took to Twitter with accusations of sexual harassment and racism against the veteran shock-rocker.

The actress and comedian known for her 2009 film opposite Michael Cera, Paper Heart, alleged that Manson once visited the set of TV medical drama House and harassed the majority of women present, according to The Hollywood Reporter. In the now-deleted tweets, she also claimed the musician hurled a racist comment at her during the same visit. Yi played neurologist Dr. Chi Park on Season 8 of House.

“Ugh, don't even get me started on Marilyn Manson,” she wrote. “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.”

Yi followed up the charge of on-set provocation and racism against Manson with a tweet lamenting the online presence of well-known harassers in the entertainment industry. Shortly thereafter, Yi deleted her Twitter account.

“It's so triggering to see people come up on the internet who have harassed you,” she offered. “And then when you talk about the incidents you become known as the person tied to the harasser. And that's just your name from now on. It almost overrides who you are.”

Manson has yet to offer comment on Yi's claims.

"Nicole Rork has an exceptional eye for catching “that moment” in her photographic work. There aren’t many photographers out there that have both a great sense of timing as well as composition in their work and Nicole has both. She has been attentive to deadlines and quick turnarounds and has always been a great person to work with on many projects over the years. I would highly recommend her to anyone – from a band needing promotional shots to a couple who are ready to enjoy their wedding day." Mike Shea, Alternative Press CEO
