Did you know Juggalos are considered a "criminal gang" by the FBI? "It gets laughs out of people, but think about it," Violent J tells Fuse. "That's insane."
After Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope tweeted a mysterious message earlier this week talking about "the biggest announcement of Insane Clown Posse's career," we've now got an answer: ICP is suing the FBI.
The problem is that the FBI considers Juggaloswhat ICP fans call themselvesa real-deal criminal gang. According to the FBI's 2011 National Gang Threat Assessment report, Juggalos are considered an official "concern to law enforcement." The members of Insane Clown Posse think that's pretty... insane.
When we spoke with Insane Clown Posse earlier this week, they explained why the FBI targeting Juggalos isn't as funny as some people think.
"[This is] an open attempt to kill us off, for the FBI to do that," Violent J tells Fuse. "It gets laughs out of people but think about itthat's insane. To name our fanbase a gang with Crips and Bloods and MS-13s.... I don't know where to begin with that sh*t. Does that mean our concerts are gang rallies now? Does that mean our merchandise is gang apparel? What if you were a Juggalo 15 years ago and you got a Hatchetman [the group's logo] on your arm? Now you're a real estate agent raising a family and you get pulled over, [suddenly] you're in the police file as a gang member because you have your favorite band's logo on your arm. That's crazy."

You would think conservatives would have political protection from being classifed as enemies of the State. Apparently not. Thanks GOP.
Get your Clown “on,” ninja.
Are Deadheads and Parrot Heads next?
I would say more like a large bunch of losers and not a criminal gang.
