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...

The REAL DEAL    

What a cry baby. So he got a scrape and a fat lip. I bet he has had more bar room fights in his day where he was beat up more than that and did not threaten to sue - - - this country is so GD'd lawsuit happy. We need laws to prevent these minor lawsuits from happening. . . .we ALL PAY FOR THESE SUITS with higher insurance premiums and other various cost you don't even know your eating. Laugh it off, scrapes will heal and you will have a story to tell. PS, ROCK OF LOVE probably was more dangerous to him with all of the STD's those women probably had.

Whatever... this pathetic bimbo's a hack... shoulds hit him harder.... why do nice guys like Carradine have their life snuffed out so tragically in a broom closet with a little rope and guys like this live through giant props hitting them in the head (made of cement I guess).

Wow    

I'm not his biggest fan, but he has a point. As a diabetic wounds can take some time to heal. Fortunately it wasn't as bad as it could've been. I don't understand those of you who aren't old enough to realize it's not funny when someone falls down and gets hurt. Next time you see someone sustain an injury, try not to enjoy it.

It wouldn't have happened had he not been trying to hog the spotlight.
Everyone else in the bad got off the stage when they were suppose to except for old baldy.

Hates Conan like crap    

"the full extent of his injuries remains to be seen until all x-rays are back."

Did he send the x-rays to Fotomat for developing or something??

X-rays come back right away, Brett. Get yourself a new doctor and in the meantime, please shut up.
