The first video of Tila Tequila’s performance at the Gathering of the Juggalos has surfaced. It’s a short clip taken from backstage showing Tila attempting to perform as a man charges the stage and has to be subdued as other crowd members hurl objects at her. She has security with her on stage, but it’s obvious even in this short clip that they were not going to be enough to protect her.
As we posted yesterday, Tila was attacked with bottles, stones and firecrackers while on stage and was chased to a trailer by an angry mob. She sustained multiple lacerations to her face and numerous other injuries in the attack and has announced plans to take legal action against the organizers of the event.

Police are hoping more videos will surface so they will be able to identify and persecute individuals involved in the incident.
