Tila Tequila Attacked By Angry Crowd
August 16, 2010
(ChattahBox) – Reminding one of the days of old when the villagers worked themselves into a frenzy before setting upon the the monster, reality star Tila Tequila says that an angry mob kicked her ass and tried to kill her. The angry mob (young fans) were gathered at a concert in Illinois, featuring music groups like the Insane Clown Posse and the Kottonmouth Kings. And Tila was actually hired to perform, but the crowd immediately turned on her according to her account given to TMZ. The fans, mostly young people who sometimes wear clown make-up and are referred to as juggalos and juggalettes, immediately pelted her with rocks and bottles, cutting her face.
“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 firecrackers on stage,” she claims.
A witness, who was standing in the rear of the stage tells CNN:
“She was taunting them,” he said. “She didn’t know how to handle them. She didn’t understand the dynamic.”
Her bodyguards rushed her off the stage but a large mob chased and surrounded the trailer where she sought refuge. They rocked the trailer and smashed its windows. Tequila eventually escaped, but her SUV was also smashed up according to reports.
Tequila, posted a Twitter message Saturday, saying she would sue the festival, which is organized for fans of the hip-hop group Insane Clown Posse.
“Pretty soon, the owners who run the juggalos will be bankrupt,” she tweeted.
Tila has claimed a lot of crazy stuff in the past, but this time it really appears to have happened.
