Reality TV personality, Tila Tequila said audience members pelted her with rocks, beer bottles, and feces while she was on stage at the Gathering of the Juggalos, a music festival in Illinois that featured the metal-rap band Insane Clown Posse.

 "I went onstage and immediately, before I even got on stage, dudes were throwing huge stone rocks in my face, beer bottles that slit my eye open, almost burnt my hair ... cuz they threw fire crackers on stage," Tequila wrote in a statement online, reported CNN

Hardin County Sheriff, Tom Seiner, confirmed the incident and said an investigation has been opened, reported the AP.  But Seiner added that it would be difficult to identify her attackers in a crowd of thousands and that he would be searching for videos of the incident. 

Tequila, whose real name is Tila Nguyen is best known for starring in her bisexual MTV reality TV show, "A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila."  The former Playboy model has since turned to music and is attempting to launch a career in hip-hop.  

She said via Twitter that she was planning to sue the festival over the incident.  

"Pretty soon the owners who run the Juggalos will be bankrupt. My attorney Alan is already on it. This is disgusting behavior from men," tweeted Tequila. 

Seiner confirmed another violent incident occurred during the four-day festival.  A Georgia man was stabbed at a campground for concertgoers.
