Tila Tequila, whose real name is Tila Nguyen, got on the receiving end of rocks, beer bottles, and feces thrown at her at the Juggalos music fest last weekend, according to the AP here.
The Juggalos is an annual festival that stretches over 4 days, organized by Insane Clown Posse and featuring mostly artists from their own label. Tequila was there as a guest artist on their “Ladies Night.”
As she went on stage, the crowd started throwing things. Apparently, this crowd loves throwing stuff because security is already on stage batting away things.
The crowd screamed for Tequila to take her top off – which she did, while still prancing around singing. The crowd got even worse, says MTV here.
According to comedian Tom Green who was there, “a mob of hundreds chas[ed] Tequila from the stage and surrounding a trailer where she sought refuge. They rocked the trailer and smashed its windows,” he told CNN here. (Watch video shot by Tom Green at the end of this entry.)
Tequila told E! Online here that she wants to sue the concert promoters.
It’s a strange day when a crowd actually gets upset at seeing Tila Tequila’s boobs.
Born in Singapore of Vietnamese boat-people parents, Tequila is probably the most famous Vietnamese TV star in the world.
She formerly hosted the reality dating competition show A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila on MTV, which ended after its second season.
Tila was named the hottest artist on Myspace in 2006.
In 2008, Tila Tequila starred in an ad calling attention to human-rights abuses in Burma. Read here. The ad was directed by Timothy Linh Bui (Green Dragon) and was one in a series produced by the Human Rights Action Center.
Last year, Tequila sued, and got sued back by, San Diego Charger Shawne Merriman after she claimed he choked and falsely imprisoned her. Merriman said Tequila was too drunk to drive and he was just keeping her safe until a taxi could arrive.
In a strange twist in the case, a few days after filing the lawsuit, Tequila got on the internet, stripped naked, and accused Merriman of an assortment of vices, including drugging underage girls and having sex with them.
