The garbage wasn’t just flying during Tila Tequila’s set at last weekend’s Gathering of the Juggalos. According to photos posted on TMZ, Wu-Tang Clan member Method Man was injured while he and longtime cohort Redman played for a rowdy crowd of Insane Clown Posse fans on Sunday (August 15) night.
The photos show Meth with a bloody gash on the left side of his face. According to an eyewitness, the injury was sustained when someone in the audience tossed what appeared to be a full beer can at the rapper’s noggin. TMZ referred to a video, apparently shot just moments after the incident, in which Redman cursed out the crowd and told his pal, “Your face is cut, go take care of that.”
Ever the professional, Meth waved off the stage injury and shouted, “Start the music, we’re continuing the show. Let’s f— these motherf—ers up!”
Meth appears to have taken his Gathering gash better than Tequila, who told E! Online that she wants to bankrupt the event’s organizers after she was reportedly injured when fans pelted her with bottles, rocks and human feces. “I’m hoping this will be the last Juggalos gathering that they will ever have,” she said on Monday, reiterating a threat to close down the annual festival that she first made on her Twitter page. Tequila claimed that her lawyers were planning to sue the festival’s promoters after she reportedly required stitches on her face and sustained bruises to her body.
Tequila said she was warned by her fans online before the show that the Juggalos were planning to attack her. She also got a heads up from ICP member Violent J, who told TMZ that the duo alerted her to pre-show rumors that she was going to be targeted during her brief Friday night set. “We told her about the rumor and she didn’t care,” J said. “We paid her before the show and assured her that even if things got out of hand, she could keep the money if she had to leave the stage.” Though he said ICP would fight hard against any potential lawsuit, the rapper lamented that the crowd got violent with Tequila.
“If you look at these people, or monsters, whatever they are, they looked very angry and violent,” Tequila said. Comedian Tom Green, who tried to stop the rain of garbage on Tequila by doing a dance onstage during her set, told CNN that a huge mob chased the former Playboy model and star of MTV’s “A Shot at Love With Tila Tequila” to her trailer, where she tried to hide out as they rocked the vehicle and smashed its windows. When the tabloid fixture tried to flee in an SUV, the windows of that vehicle were also reportedly smashed.
