We may still be wondering why singer and reality star Tila Tequila was appearing at the 2010 Gathering of the Juggalos at Cave in Rock, IL, a 4 day festival about 330 miles south of Chicago. She was there and she was pelted with thrown ‘objects’ from the crowd, bottles, feces, and rocks.
According to my favorite source of surprisingly accurate celebrity news, TMZ, where there are pictures of a beat up Miss Tequila, she was warned before her set that she would be attacked.
Insane Clown Posse member and an organizer of the festival, Violent J said, “We told her about the rumor and she didn’t care. We paid her before the show and assured her that even if things got out of hand, she could keep the money if she had to leave the stage.”
As you can see in the video below(warning, there’s some swearing in it) Miss Tequila tried to perform behind a few security people as the crowd yelled and threw things at her. She said about the attack, “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 on fire cuz they threw fire crackers on stage, and they even took the sh*t out of the port-0-potty and threw sh*t and p*ss at me when I was onstage.”
She went on to say: “These people were trying to kill me. So then after the last blow to my head with the firecracker they threw at me exploded, my bodyguard and the other security grabbed me and ran as fast as they could to the shitty trailer. Since their security SUCKS, the 2 thousand people ran after us, trying to kill me. They almost got me so they finally reach the trailer, blood all over myself, cant stop bleeding, then all of a sudden, all 2 thousand people surround the trailer and busts the windows!!! Even the guys INSIDE with me were shaking! Their hands were shaking cuz they were so scared! So 3 guys inside the trailer had to grab a table and push it over the broken windows and grabbed all the chairs they could find so hold the people from outside back. It was scary as hell!” They chased her off stage and into a trailer, then broke a window in the trailer, all the time throwing things at her.
Violent J’s admission that she was warned could easily be turned into an admission that adequate security was not provided for Miss Tequila. She has promised to sue the promoters of the Gathering of the Juggalos for her injuries. She suffered cuts to her head, bruises all over her body and she was terrorized by an angry mob. I wonder if Insane Clowns have insurance for this type of attack?
