Tila Tequila Attacked by Juggalos: A First-Hand Account

Camille Dodero of our sister publication the Village Voice was at the annual Gathering Of The Juggalos when it all went down; you can read Dodero's full account here. 

First, a glossary: Juggalos are fans of Insane Clown Posse, who calls themselves “the most hated band in the world.” The four-day festival put on by Psychopathic Records had invited Tequila to perform at a Ladies' Night for the loyal following of Juggalettes (i.e., female Juggalos). The line-up, which Lil' Kim was supposed to headline, was dubbed the “Juggalettes' Revenge”–for “ladies who don't get a lot of love,” said Ladies' Night host Michelle Rapp. 
According to Dodero, Insane Clown Posse fans routinely throw things at these annual Gatherings, but at Tequila's show, they “were so livid that a “mainstream” tabloid star was infiltrating their 'underground' Shangri-La that a fever pitch of promises were made, via Twitter and Juggalo forums, to heckle her, to spray her with Faygo–the Juggalos' soft drink of choice–and to drench her in urine,” Dodero reported. Tequila apparently continued performing once objects started flying, and kept shouting, “I don't give a fuck!”; in the middle of her performance, she pulled off her top.

Dodero further reported:

When Tequila first came out, shooting Silly String at the angry mob, a sign reading CUNT was there to greet her. My photographer, who was shooting at the front of the stage, saw an egg hit her in the face. At one point, a Juggalo with a kerchief over his face climbed up and lunged at her; he was stopped. Then suddenly, Tila Tequila was topless, bleeding, and holding a cloth to her head. Security pulled her offstage and hustled her to a nearby trailer, where she says windows got smashed. I was standing there and I can admit that the scene had gotten pretty ugly.

1. several rubber dildos

Tequila told TMZ: 

“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 bodygaurd and the other security grabbed me and ran as fast as they could to the shitty trailor. Since their security SUCKS, the 2 thousand people ran after us, trying to kill me. They almost got me so they finally reach the trailor, blood all over myself, cant stop bleeding, then all of a sudden, all 2 thousand people surround the trailor 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 trailor 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!”
