I find it strange that her reaction to the crowd being antagonistic is to show her breasts. Is that like a conditioned stress response for her? If it is that's a bit disturbing.

The next ICP concert should just be nuked to make the world a better place.

Knowing little about her, I can only guess that she probably was trying her singing (or comedy, 'though I've never heard her referred to as a comic and know she's been trying to hook up with a band and released some what is referred to as music) and since her boobs are her claim to fame for the most part, amidst the hostility she probably heard someone shout out, "Ahhhh shaddup and show us your tits!"... and she likely did so. And, yes, with her history (and the amount of money she probably paid for those puppies) that is her likely recourse to many situations.



As to the thread? I'm gonna do my Vinnie Bobbarino.... "I'm so confused!" Are we supposed to be picking on this hapless little self-promoter and rooting her on to bodily injury? Or are we supposed to be going after ICP fans? If you guys could just tell me who we're picking on, it'd make my life so much easier.

Thank you in advance,
Foolmewunz

It's routine to have stuff thrown on stage at the concerts. So routine that everyone is warned of it well in advance and many acts refuse to participate. It's the Rocky Horror Picture Show of concerts.

Watch the video, there's a few on YouTube. You want to know what really happened? She came out, the crowd wasn't having anything to do with her, they told her to pop her top so they could see her boobs, which she did, after which they still didn't want to have anything to do with her and started throwing stuff. It was paper cups and plastic bottles while she told the crowd to **** off behind 4 body guards. She started calling the crowd bitches and it looks like a couple bodyguards started roughing up some fans while Tequila continued to antagonize the crowd saying she wasn't some Paris Hilton, she was a bad ass rapper gangster.

Now this may shock you, but this girl isn't mentally stable. Everyone seems to be blaming the ICP fans like she was some sort of angel. I'm not saying it's right what the crowd did, but if you want to point fingers at who's responsible for this tranewreck it's society in general.

She faked a suicide last year, why? Because she was falling out of the spotlight and she'll do anything to stay in it. She's a drama queen. No coincidence then that if you watch the video there's nothing actually hitting her. She also posted her picture on Twitter with her face all cut up, started talking about suing the promoters but it doesn't look like she went to the hospital? I'm not saying she's lying but she isn't the most trust worthy source.

It must be nice to live in your black and white world where there are no mitigating factors.

I'm not sure if it's the same in the US, but here in Canada we assume some responsibility when choose not to walk away from a situation. It's true, if you get called out of a bar to fight, and you go outside and start chirping off, and for some reason you get knocked out you are partially responsible.

If you incite a situation you take responsibility for what happens. You aren't allowed to go around instigating things and remain in the free and clear.

So while no one condones violence at some point you need to walk away. She wasn't chained to the stage. Instead of getting naked and talking trash and telling the crowd to **** off she should have walked.

You can't incite a riot, sorry.

Is there video footage of the incident?

The whole poo, rocks and chasing her to her trailer to kill her sounds a little bit over the top.

I understand that empty water bottles are a socially acceptable projectile at these events.
I once threw one at the London Philharmonic Orchestra, but that was frowned upon.

There's a few floating around YouTube. They seem to be getting pulled as fast as they upload so I didn't bother linking one.

The LPO probably deserved it.

Heh we're so used to youtube being our primary source of video we forget there are other, less restricted, sources out there. A quick google search pulled this up

NSFW, cause of nudity and language. Surprisingly no real violence. But you can see how the crowd eventually starts throwing more stuff and it probably gets much worse after this vid.

No, the juggaloos are responsible. "Society" wasn't throwing crap and didn't (allegedly) chase her to her trailer. Honestly, considering the mental stability and capacity of jugaloos, I'd posit that Tequila was probably higher on the bell curve for the first time in her life at that concert.

Maybe if she had stripped stark bucko naked they wouldn't have attacked her. All kidding aside there is no excuse for attacking a woman and making her feel like she was going to be murdered.

This thread has nothing to do with politics. Not every aspect of human interaction needs to be related back to your personal political obsessions.


from http://www.wwtdd.com :

Yeah tough guy, we get it, you don’t like her. What a bold and rebellious opinion. So go attack ICP for inviting her. Tila is 18 inches tall and weighs less than a house cat. Even if she doubled in size overnight I could still carry her around in a backpack. It would look like she was teaching me the Force.

Seeing the video I thought three things:

1) She really sticks it out. They throw stuff at her for a long time but she keeps singing.

2) You can't see her tits very well.

3) Why is everyone so nonchalant about the throwing stuff early on?

Not only chase this small woman into her trailor but smash the windows with rocks and try to break the door down. She had every reason to think she was going to be murdered. Hopefully some of these losers can be identified and get some punishment.

She might not be being entirely honest about her feeling about the assault. Best to play it up for more publicity.

I have done research because of this thread, and decided that her tits are really not all that good. Basic fake books.

I dunno. Did you see the picture of her post-attack? Given her size and lack of supernatural fighting abilities, I'd consider a mob throwing heavy objects and then rushing me to be of murderous intent.

LMFAO, please enlighten us about the metal stability and capacity of jugaloos.

As usual you're talking out of your posterior and everyone knows it. YOU DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT A CROWDS MENTAL CAPACITY. You are a liar by saying you do.

She didn't leave when they started throwing thing like plastic bottles.

Of course this is a likely a good career movie for her, gets her name back out there so she can do her next reality show, where she will need new ways of humiliating her suitors.

My understanding and experience is that things get thrown on the stage all the time. It's not always cause for concern, though it is cause for security to start taking things seriously.

However, seeing the marks on her face from being hit by flying objects, thus reflecting that she was hurt repeatedly from the crowd's actions, and again taking into account her size and lack of supernatural ninja skills, I see no reason to doubt that she would be afraid for her life. This does not mean that the crowd was going to kill her, but lacking mental telepathy, it's hard for a victim to know what their attackers are thinking.

Correct, but they don't usually chant "Get off the stage you suck, this is going no where, if you're going to stay show us your boobs, no your boobs suck too, just go away"

You haven't been to one of my concerts, have you?

Hardly matters though given that my response was in regards to Tila Tequila stating that she was afraid for her life and believed that the mob would kill her. Hecklers are hardly a new thing in the stage entertainment industry, even if the performer/performance is heckle worthy.

Hardly matters though given that my response was in regards to Tila Tequila stating that she was afraid for her life and believed that the mob would kill her. Hecklers are hardly a new thing in the stage entertainment industry, even if the performer/performance is heckle worthy.
I don't think I have, no

Tequila said she was afraid for her life last year, but from herself

That was a lie. Now that she's crying wolf I'm less inclined to believe her. They wanted her off stage, she wouldn't go, the bouncers got physical, the crowd reacted and they chased her off. I certainly could have got ugly, and a bunch of angry clowns chasing you and throwing stuff might traumatize you.

But if you think for a second this drama queen didn't have an angle you're just being naive.

You've just described by 8th birthday party, and yes, those clowns were definitely trying to kill me.

I prefer the term naively optimistic. Until proven otherwise, and given the circumstances, on this one I'm willing to give her a pass. How she proceeds from here will determine if I revoke it.

How many legitimate acts have you seen stay on stage after being booed and people throwing stuff? You think Tila was so dedicated to her art to just wanted to persevere?

Or is it more likely she thought "Hey I'll just keep going and antagonize the crowd, so what if I get hit with something, I'll just sue"?

Where did this idea that Tila Tequila is a comedian come from? I have never heard it anywhere other than this thread and the fact it's been repeated several times indicates that some people are taking what they read on essentially anonymous internet fora too seriously. That's fair enough, but this is supposed to be a sceptics forum!

She's a joke.

Maybe the ICP could book Heidi Montag for their next show.

Or maybe that she's not gotten the reception she hoped for, and was upset and not behaving rationally? Not an argument that she should have stayed, but there are perfectly plausible reasons she might have stayed without nefarious intent.
