You may recall that in 2011, the FBI classified Insane Clown Posse fans, affectionately known as juggalos, as a “loosely organized hybrid gang.”. Insane Clown Possee has been trying to sue the FBI over the classification for years, but it keeps getting thrown out of court.
ICP has since filed for an appeal and while they wait, ICP plan to take to the streets of D.C. for their own version of the Million Man March. Rolling Stone reports the duo held a seminar at this past weekend's Gathering of the Juggalos where they announced plans for this march:
"In 2017, the weekend of September 17th, we need you," the rapper told an audience at whatThe Detroit News described as a "seminar discussion" at the Gathering of the Juggalos. "We're gonna do a [expletive] march on Washington. They call the Juggalo World a movement, right? Well, let's move!"
The march, scheduled to take place September 16th, will start at the Lincoln Memorial, head down Constitution Avenue and end at the Washington Monument, where the duo and fans will, in Violent J's words, "explain to the world who the [expletive] we really are."
Violent J is aware such an event can blow up in their faces saying "We could totally embarrass ourselves, and there could be 25 people [who show up to protest]."
But that isn't going to stop them from trying. To help curate an audience, the group will be doing a free concert that weekend at Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, Virginia and host a picnic the day after the march, although those details are not yet available.
While you wait for September 16th to roll around, take a look at some juggalo discrimination stories (yes, these are real.)
