The Official Insane Clown Posse Statement on the Tila Tequila Incident


The statement didn’t go out until today because ICP was literally running a four-day festival in the middle of the woods, with no cell reception or internet access. But now TMZ finally got some quotes from Violent J on the Tila Tequila incident and less than 10 minutes ago, Psychopathic/Juggalo Gathering LLC just put out their official release. It reads in full:

Although what happened to Tila Tequila at the 11th Annual Gathering of the
Juggalos is extremely unfortunate, Juggalo Gathering, LLC and Insane Clown
Posse are not responsible. Ms. Tequila was made aware, in advance, of her
unpopularity with many Juggalos at the Gathering, but she insisted on
performing. She was even paid in full before her performance, and was told that
she did not have to perform, but if she did decide to perform, she could leave the
stage the minute that she felt uncomfortable. Gathering’s head of security told
her that it was unsafe to go on stage, and recommended that she leave the
Gathering grounds. Despite warnings and already being paid without being
required to perform, Ms. Tequila made the decision to go onto the stage and
perform. As soon as her show started the crowd began to boo heavily and throw
garbage. It was immediately obvious that she was not welcome. Her injuries
were only sustained because of her refusal to leave the stage. After several
minutes, she even removed her top, exposing herself, which seemed to mock
and further antagonize the crowd. Finally, Gathering security pulled her off of the
stage. Soon after, she was escorted to her car, and was driven safely off of the
Gathering grounds.
