Jemina Pearl Really Did Beat That Dude Up


We still treasure the not-so-recent memory of Jemina Pearl’s right cross, as administered to a six-foot-something, 200-pound drunk comedian whose subsequent attempt to remain on his feet was satisfyingly brief. That incident proved, if nothing else, that those looking for a fight with Pearl will get one. And they will probably lose. Last week, someone in Detroit tried again, flicking lit cigarettes at the diminutive frontwoman. Which was a huge mistake. Wrote Pearl on her blog:

    yes, i did beat up a dude. he was being a dick and heckling us the whole time. it was pissing off john and max especially. i poured a bottle of water on him, but he wouldn’t quit. i told all the boys to just ignore him, and we were having a lot of fun on stage. unfortunately, dude fucked up during the last song by flicking lit cigarettes at me. not cool. i kicked his ass, there was blood, and everyone at the show cheered because he sucked. even his roommate was putting him down after the show. dude was asking for it the whole show, and he seemed pretty pleased when it was over. i guess he got what he wanted?

Where else but Detroit? Seriously though, whatever violent urge this woman provokes in fully grown males–think twice, clowns. You will regret it.
