Can a fan base be considered gang?

Posted on: No Comments

Update: As of July 10, 2014, the U.S. District Court of Eastern Michigan ruled against ICP. The group will appeal. 

We’re looking today at Juggalos (not gigolos, they’re something entirely different). Juggalo is generally a name given to fans of the ‘horrorcore’ group Insane Clown Posse – they wear clown make-up, love violent and murder-based imagery, and have a very strong bond with each other.

It turns out, though, that the FBI think that Juggalos are more than just a musical fan base. They have listed Juggalos as an ‘organised crime gang’ – and the Insane Clown Posse are NOT HAPPY about having their fan base slandered like this. In fact, they’re suing the FBI and the Department Of Justice demanding that Juggalos are removed from the list.
