We can’t condone the terrible music career of Myspace star turned shame immune fameball Tila Tequila, but as an office of defenseless non-aggressors we condone violence even less. So in the great Juggalo vs. Tequila stage pelting of 2010, we’ll have to side with the skimpier dressed latter – for the simple fact that throwing human feces at someone, no matter how shit eating their grin might be, is totally not cool.
Tequila, who is planning to take legal action against attackers and festival organizers alike, performed at the “Gathering of the Juggalos” in rural Illinois last weekend and was met with a barrage of rocks, bottles, fire crackers, feces and a 2000-strong chorus of “take your shirt off”. She did, of course. But not before sustaining facial cuts, bruising and you know, other people’s shit being thrown in her general direction which, except for a small minority of people from Europe (probably), is a horrifying experience for any human. Perhaps those rabid Juggalos (fans of Insane Clown Posse) are really as dangerous as the hyperbolic Australian media makes them out to be. I mean, we can let terrible music taste slide because at the end of the day it’s completely subjective and maybe we’re the ones who don’t get it but the willingness with which the Juggalos took to collecting other people’s excrement for the purposes of throwing at a topless, Asian barbie doll is pretty alarming.
Says Tequila in a note to 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 on fire cuz they threw fire crackers on stage, and they even took the sh*t out of the port-0-potty and threw sh*t and piss at me when I was onstage.“
