Tila Tequila Reportedly Attacked at the 2010 Gathering of the Juggalos

Posted By on Mon, Aug 16, 2010 at 7:30 AM

The annual Gathering of the Juggalos took place last weekend in Hardin County, Illinois, roughly three hours southeast of St. Louis. Like past years, the camaraderie-fostering event features a performance from Insane Clown Posse and its associated musical acts, as well as appearances by other artists such as Lil Kim, Naughty By Nature, Redman & Method Man and Tech N9ne. Over the weekend, however, reality star Tila Tequila was apparently attacked by members of the crowd during her appearance. A CNN article quoted a statement Tequila made to TMZ about the incident, in which she said she was hit by rocks, beer bottles and even fireworks. The article also quotes a witness who noted that the debris hailstorm intensified after she flashed her breasts at the crowd. Said commenter -- a performer at the festival -- wished to remain anonymous, thus spawning the greatest sentence ever to appear on CNN: "The witness asked not to be identified so that he does not anger the juggalos." Any updates to this will no doubt be on Tequila's Twitter.
