Insane Clown Posse Plans March in Washington D.C. to Protest FBI
Hey Juggalos and Juggalettes, imagine this... A Million Clown March. Well it's happening next year because Insane Clown Posse really loves their fans. After a 2011 report by the FBI’s National Gang Intelligence Center classified the Juggalos, Insane Clown Posse's fans, as a “loosely organized hybrid gang,” the group filed a lawsuit against the FBI. In 2014, a federal judge dismissed the lawsuit, but last year an appeals court revived it. So, they're planning a massive march on Washington to protest against the FBI. The suit was filed in Michigan by the band's lawyers as well as lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan. The plaintiffs in the suit included both ICP rappers Joseph Bruce (Violent J) and Joseph Utsler (Shaggy 2 Dope), and four Juggalos According to The Detroit News, ICP member Violent J made the announcement at the duo’s Gathering Of The Juggalos festival this past weekend. The protest is planned to happen in Washington DC on the weekend of 9/16 of next year. It will start at the Lincoln Memorial, then move down Constitution Avenue to the Washington Monument. That same weekend, ICP will play a free show at Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, Virginia, and they’ll also host a picnic for fans the morning after the march. Violent J admits, “We don’t know what’s going to happen. We could totally embarrass ourselves, and there could be 25 people.” Even if you don't dig ICP's music, you have to give mega props to a group who goes this far for its fans. They have die hard fans, but it seems the love is mutual.
