Bret Michaels Is Bloody Mad -- I'm No Liza Minnelli

6/11/2009 11:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

You're looking at the face of a man who took on the Tony Awards -- and barely made it out alive.

Bret Michaels

Bret Michaels
just posted these gruesome pics of his busted ass face after a prop at the award show came down and cracked him in the kisser at the end of a live performance Sunday night.

The Poison frontman also posted a scathing press release on his website, attacking the Tony's for not caring about his injuries-- because he's not Liza Minnelli!!

Here's a snippet from the actual release -- "I feel had this incident happened to Liza Minnelli, Dolly Parton or Elton John the Tonys would have at least issued a letter of concern."

In the statement, Bret claims he was dazed and bloodied during the incident, but "the full extent of his injuries remains to be seen until all x-rays are back."

Michaels reps claim someone working on the Tony's should have prevented the injury form ever happening, saying "the prop should have been immediately halted until Michaels was clear."

Sounds like someone's setting the stage for a serious lawsuit...

Thats a shame Leave Bret Michaels alone.. he is NOT gay and definitly not a sissy or a wuss. Ide like to see anyone of you have a Prop come down on youre head and lets see how you feel then, and Bret is NOT a dirty Old man thank you very Much ! He is an awesome Singer and still a Very Sexy man.. How man of you can say that you have or ever had as many beautiful women wanting you the way Bret Had and STILL has after him ? he has a million Fans that love and adore him and love the band Poison. so if you have nothing nice to say , say nothing ! and Bald or not ( doubtt he is ) Bret Michaels is still Hot .. even at 46 xoxoxoxxo Luv ya Bret !

UNTIL ALL X-RAYS ARE BACK???? Where did he have them taken? Siberia? Big pop star can't get his fotos back right away like everyone else? Don't think so. Why lie??? Just waiting for the PR and legal machine to come up with the right words. What a phoney. Life awaits you.

Sounds like lawsuit material to me. And Bret loves attention. Seems inevitable
But TMZ, "should have prevented to injury form ever happening" doesn't make any sense. Maybe you all were looking for the words "the" and "from"??? Just a suggestion....

The Tony awards suck... I don't care who was on stage; that you like him or not is of no concern... Somebody got injured and they showed no compassion whatsoever...

If he hadn't have been wearing that stupid cowboy hat to cover up his bald head he would have been able to see the wall coming down. It's his own damn fault.

Won't know until all the xrays are in? Last I had one, I knew that very day what they showed. Grow up. You've gotten hurt worse than this in a bar fight.
