File this under "Gigs That You Should Probably Turn Down." Tia Tequila - Playboy model, annoying reality-TV star, and former self-proclaimed fiancee to recently-deceased socialite Casey Johnson - was recently booked as the "entertainment" at a festival held in rural Hardin County, Illinois. The event? The "Gathering of the Juggalos" - a celebration of all things having to do with Insane Clown Posse.

It did not go well.


Best quote from a witness to the debacle, courtesy CNN:

http://www.cnn.com/2010/SHOWBIZ/cel.../15/tila.tequila.attacked/index.html?iref=NS1


"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."

Completely understandable, if you ask me...
_______________________________________________________

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.

"Pretty soon, the owners who run the juggalos will be bankrupt," she tweeted.

The fans are mostly young people who sometimes wear clown make up and are referred to as juggalos and juggalettes.

Festival organizers did not immediately respond to CNN requests for a response.

The performer said a mob of hundreds chased Tequila from the stage and surrounded the trailer where she sought refuge. They rocked the trailer and smashed its windows, the witness said.

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. It would be "very hard" to identify the attackers unless he can locate video of the incident, the sheriff said.

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

"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.

This was not the only violent incident at the festival early Saturday, Seiner said.

A 49-year-old Georgia man was arrested for allegedly stabbing another man in the abdomen just hours earlier, he said.

I think a round up of those fans would probably save about 2,000 future robbery, larceny, assault, and murder charges.

What a crazy story.

She was pelted with "huge stone rocks". Thank goodness it wasn't any other kind of rocks. They might be dangerous.

Isn't hiring Tila Tequila to sing at the Juggalo gathering kinda like hiring a Biggie Smalls impersonator to sing at a Tupac memorial concert?

They should make a ICP video game, and this should be the premise. Extra points for smashing bottles on Tila and stomping fellow juggalos.

ICP concert is more proof that copious alcohol consumption and violent music is not a good combination.

//don't forget the bonus round where you fish turds out of the port a john and hurl them at Tila.

Can someone explain to me what what this whole juggalo thing is? They're more than just fans of ICP, aren't they? Is there gang activity involved, illegal drug trade, etc? Or are they just music fans and not into the gang thing? I'm too old to know about this sort of thing.

They're sorta like the exact opposite of "Dead Heads" or "Phish Heads."

OMG the comments on the article the OP posted are hilarious.

I honestly cannot think of anyone more pathetic than ICP and their followers. Atleast Tila Tequila has a descent ass. Her ass alone, being descent, has more talent than ICP and every single juggalo combined.

This is great. Losers throwing sh*t at a loser. Maybe that means they liked her, after all, I can see juggalos using feces as currency at such a festival.
She never should have tried to explain to them how magnets worked.
In a year full of bad news, celebrity deaths, oil spills, and everything else, it’s so refreshing to FINALLY read a feel-good news story!!
