“Hey. Thanks for the follow. I’m running for Governor of Oklahoma and trying to speak for the real people for a change and get some people help with addiction in this State that no one cares about,” he wrote to Manson. “Would you endorse me? Not asking for money. Just to use your name as an endorsement.”
Manson shared the photo with a simple caption referencing another Netflix program. “Nope. Don’t Fuck With Cats.”
