“I’ve been saving this but it seems like the appropriate time,” Evan said in a video of the performance that she shared on Instagram, before putting up her middle finger as she sang Manson's name and causing the crowd to cheers. 

"You get what you give. For my fellow survivors who got slapped in the face this week. I love you. Don't give up," she wrote in the caption.
