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.

The mostly drug addled 60’s generation has spawned what looks to be the worst generation...ever.
Lord, it may be worse than I thought!
This society is doomed.
This ICP thing has been going on for 10+ years. Came out of the excess of the 1990s (which saw “artists” like GG Allin naked at concerts throwing his own excrement at frightened members of the audience who came to see him throw chase around OTHER audience members).
Just look at the pix. ..on second thought, don’t look at the pix.
A scary thought: These are the next generation of our country’s leaders!
This what happens when family trees don’t fork.
Next generation of the DNC.
Tone Loc is an amazing story.
He wasn't a rapper and had no musical background - but a member of The Dust Brothers (producers who did backing music not just for him, but for Young MC, the Beastie Boys, Beck, Korn, Hanson and Santana) liked the sound of his raspy voice, so they wrote lyrics for him to say and composed the music for his albums.
Tone Loc was basically invented by two white guys in a studio.
Basically an ICP imitator.
Naughty by Nature,
Desperately promoting a new single, haven't had a hit since 1997.
Hasn't had a hit since 1997.
Not even an MC, hasn't had a hit since 1990.
ICP's friends and proteges.
What a motley crew.
Chubby Checker was a janitor hired by Dick Clark when Hank Ballard’s “The Twist” started moving up the charts. Dick found a sound alike singer with a smiling face and without the “dirty song” history of Hank Ballad (who had songs like “Sexy Ways”, “Work With Me Annie”, “Annie Had A Baby” et al). As Jesse Jackson would say, “cut his *#@$ off!”.
What gets into these dirtbags’ heads? I mean, I have no regard for this woman at all and think she’s a good example of everything that’s screwed up in our culture, but the idea of hurting her with broken glass because of that turns my stomach.
BTW, just so it’s clear, I wasn’t thinking that these attackers were motivated by dislike of her morals. Just sayin’ she makes me want to throw up and I’d never lay a hand on her.
She then apparently complied in hopes that they would let her leave the stage without any more debris being hurled, but the mob was already on autopilot.
Yet another reason to despise the Insane Clown Posse and their mindless drones.
Lazy, Gen-X vermin who do nothing but follow this Insane Clown posse band around the country and take their songs as the gospel. In a lot of ways, they’re about as witless as the “Deadheads” were back in the day.
Juggalos need to get a job and a shower.
“What a motley crew”.
Were they there also?/s
Ouch. don't go there.
If you had any vestige of hope for the future of humankind, go see the crowd at an Insane Clown Posse “concert”.
No; these are the floating slag raked off the top of the crucible, (later used for RR track ballast) where the real leaders and producers are refined.
I doubt they even vote...assuming they know how.
Oh; maybe ACORN casts their votes for them
Luckily, I have no hope for humanity.
“This is what happens when family trees don’t fork”
Or when the genetic pool is a puddle.
As opposed to the intelligent, cerebral Parrotheads...
At least the chicks are hotter. Fins up!
“When evolution facepalms, there is no escape.”
But what the hell...their makeup/masks will make them easy to identify WTSHTF.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
It's those who have compunction, standards and vulnerable loved ones to protect who are at a disadvantage.
“We are DEVO.”
LOL, the long downward spiral of devolution has begun!
All hail the protohuman uprising.
Death to Videodrome. Long live The New Flesh.
Sounds a lot like the background of "Hurricane Smith" ... not a very good singing voice, but it sort of grew on you if you let it ... (like mold) ... biggest "hits" were "Who was it" and "Oh, babe, what would you say?".
"English recording engineer and producer who worked with the Beatles; as a musician, used pseudonym "Hurricane" Smith on his self-titled album."
