Tila Tequila Attacked at Music Festival

Cuts sustained by Tila Tequila at Gathering of the Juggalos

Tila Tequila, reality TV star and aspiring musician, was allegedly mobbed Friday night at The Gathering of the Juggalos, a music festival for hardcore fans of Insane Clown Posse. Tequila was performing a set as part of the festival’s Ladies Night.

According to Tequila’s own account of what happened, video of the first few seconds of the attack, statements by law enforcement, and Tweets from festival-goers, the audience was riled up within minutes of Tequila appearance on-stage. Tequila attempted to calm the audience down by baring her breasts, which only seemed to infuriate the audience more. Tequila was pelted with thrown objects, including rocks and beer bottles, causing multiple cuts and bruises all over her face and body. She left the stage to hide in her trailer, which was quickly surrounded by the mob who smashed its windows. Only when she escaped the trailer did the violence die down.

Look, I’m no fan of Tila Tequila. I think she’s an embarassment to the Asian American community, and her attempts at a music career are laughable.

But no one deserves to be physically assaulted, particularly not in what may have been an organized attack by uncaring music fans trying to intimidate and threaten her. Tila Tequila may not belong at an Insane Clown Posse music festival, but girl doesn’t need the message sent in the form of a brick to her head.
