Tila Tequila suffers cuts, but escapes juggalos attack
CNN ^ | 8-16-10 | Alan Duke

Posted on 08/16/2010 10:37:50 AM PDT by Mikey_1962

Reality TV star Tila Tequila suffered facial cuts when she was pelted with rocks and bottles while performing at a music festival in Illinois early Saturday, according to a witness and a law enforcement official.

"She's pretty cut up," said a performer who saw the violence at the "Gathering of the Juggalos" in rural Hardin County, Illinois. The witness asked not to be identified so that he does not anger the juggalos.

Tequila, a Playboy model who also sings, posted a Twitter message Saturday, saying she would sue the festival, which is organized for fans of the hip-hop group Insane Clown Posse.

Tequila eventually escaped, but only after windows in her SUV were smashed, he said.

Hardin County Sheriff Tom Seiner, who offered a similar description of the events, said he has an open investigation.

Tequila offered her descriptions of the events in a statement to celebrity news website.

"I went onstage and immediately, before I even got on stage, dudes were throwing huge stone rocks in my face, beer bottles that slit my eye open, almost burnt my hair ... cuz they threw fire crackers on stage," she wrote.

The witness, who was standing in the rear of the stage, said the crowd of about 2,000 was immediately angry toward Tequila and she was unable to turn them around.

"She was taunting them," he said. "She didn't know how to handle them. She didn't understand the dynamic."

The rocks and bottles flew harder and faster when Tequila bared her breasts, he said.

"She took her top off and they got really violent," he said.

Tequila continued to perform even after her face started bleeding, he said. "She was holding a towel to her head, blood pouring down her face," he said.

"It was scary as hell!" Tequila wrote.

"Tequila, a Playboy model who also sings,"

She is a no talent tease who over estimated her appeal.

Bring on Gaga!

At least the witness spoke out unlike those who claim to denounce Islamic jihad.

As someone completely ignorant of pop culture, I have no idea who this person is or why the crowed would react to her is such a way.

Also it is impossibly to pass judgment without at least a photo.

Some of the stories say they were throwing human waste at her, also. At least, that’s what she’s claiming.

Just a thought...maybe in the future, they need to build the ICP’s stage sets with a large chicken-wire fence along the edge of the stage. You know, like the honky-tonk in “The Blues Brothers”.

Nah...the whole point behind a neutron bomb is to leave the infrastructure behind so you can use it. There's nothing there worth leaving. Best bet is cauterization, so just go ahead and lob a B-61.

From Wikipedia:J

uggalo or Juggalette (the latter being feminine) is a name given to fans of Insane Clown Posse or any other Psychopathic Records hip hop group. Juggalos have developed their own idioms, slang, and characteristics.

There have been numerous incidents of Juggalos committing violent acts, though there is no independent evidence linking music with violence or crime.[20][21][22][23][24] Although Juggalos have denied any connection to gang activity,[4] authorities have classified them as a gang in Utah,[25] Arizona,[4] Monroe County, Pennsylvania[26][27] and Modesto, California.[28]

Because of this, some schools have prohibited students from wearing Insane Clown Posse related paraphernalia.[29][30] During Tila Tequila’s performance at the 2010 Gathering of the Juggalos, numerous items were thrown at her and she has threatened to sue the event’s promoters, Insane Clown Posse.[31][32]

As the public face of the Juggalo subculture, Psychopathic Records and Insane Clown Posse have repeatedly denounced violence within the fandom. Many of the crimes, including murders, have been labeled by Alex Abiss (former CEO of Psychopathic Records) as being just crazy individuals finding an excuse for their actions.[33]

They may be fans of the Insane Clown Posse, but I'm not sure that qualifies as hip hop.

Tia Tequila is a no talent whore, famous for simply screwing famous people (Shawn Merriman, etc.)
In this case, she got EXACTLY what she wanted: more attention and a possible settlement for her “injuries”.
Personally, I’ve seen more convincing wounds from 1st year theatrical makeup students...

“The four-day festival is an annual event geared toward fans of the metal-rap group Insane Clown Posse, who are dubbed “Juggalos.” ICP headlined the fest but a diverse range of performers including Kottonmouth Kings, Naughty by Nature, Coolio, Tone Loc and Twiztid also hit the stage.”
