Insane Clown Posse deeply resent being compared to Trump

Huffington Post: “A member of the rap duo Insane Clown Posse said an Atlantic article that trashed the group and its fans by comparing them to Donald Trump’s presidency was ‘off the mark.’ On Tuesday, Atlantic writer Graeme Wood published a piece titled ‘What to Do With Trumpists’ in which he invoked Juggalos – the affectionate name for fans of ICP – in his commentary about the Trump administration, which he referred to as ‘the political equivalent of the Insane Clown Posse.’ Despite themes of violence in ICP’s music, multiple documentaries about Juggalos show they are less interested in the violent lyrics than in the sense of community the rap duo fosters.”

“Violent J, who formed ICP with Shaggy 2 Dope, told HuffPost in a series of texts that he found Wood’s description to be inaccurate. ‘I can’t believe TheAtlantic.com would hire a writer, presumably for his expertise in journalism who’s that off the mark, as well as an editor for his or her fact checking abilities who obviously lives within a reality separate from our own when it comes to defining who Juggalos truly are and what they’re about,’ he wrote. Unlike Trump, ICP also showed leadership in the fight against the coronavirus. The group canceled its yearly Gathering of the Juggalos the same month the president was downplaying the virus. In a follow-up text, Violent J said he was hurt to see Wood’s mischaracterization of the Juggalo community. ‘The truth is it fuckin’ hurts and [it’s] scary seeing professional adults acting like savage bullies,’ he said, noting that ICP fans make ‘easy targets because they’re so misunderstood.’ He added: ‘sad little bullshit like this makes me question the media in general!'”
