Tila was performed at the 11th Annual Gathering of Juggalos in Illinois, where she claims she was violently attacked by the audience. Also performing at the concert were The Insane Clown Posse and the Kottonmouth Kings. These bands are considered juggalo bands known for having thousands of rough and rowdy followers. Tequila tells TMZ all about the warm welcome.
” I went onstage immediately, and 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 ’cause they threw crackers on stage”.
Tila also told TMZ that the crowd chased her all the way back to her trailer and threw feces and urine at her.).
A picture of Tila Tequila’s wounded face and video clips of the attack have been circulating on the internet all week.
You wouldn’t believe the number of response videos on Youtube. Some people say Tila deserved it. Others ask, what was she thinking? Has her career really taken such a fatal turn that she feels the need to perform at events like that? ‘
I’ve asked myself the same questions. But the audience committed a crime against Tila and justice should be served on her behalf.
If it sounds like I’m defending Tila, I am. The crowd threw objects at her, tried to fight her, and chased her violently off stage. I don’t think there was any reason for such violence, even if they didn’t like her music.
It was violence against women in its purest form. Most of the people who tried to attack her were probably male. (More than half of self-proclaimed juggalos seem to be). Did they expect her to fight back? Against thousands of angry people, nonetheless?
Although there was security working this event, Tila claims that their efforts were futile. (Look at the video clip, you might think so too).
“Even the guys inside [the trailer] with me were shaking! [The guys] inside the trailer had to grab a table and push it over the broken windows and grabbed all the chairs they could find to hold the people from outside the back. It was scary as hell!” Tila told TMZ.
According to Contact Music, Tila filed complaint with Illinois police.. A verdict has not been reached, but I think its safe to say that Tila Tequila won’t be performing at anymore juggalo events.
