Insane Clown Posse plans its own March on Washington
After scientists have their March on Washington, fans of the Insane Clown Posse will have a protest of their own.
If you aren't familiar with the group, it is a hardcore hip-hop duo made up of members Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope.
The artists, and their record label Psychopathic Records, have extremely devoted fans.
The fans call themselves Juggalos, and they are famous for throwing massive parties and painting their faces like clowns.
They plan to protest the FBI and the Department of Justice's listing of Juggalos as a "loosely organized hybrid gang" in their 2011 Gang Task Force report.
"We have tried to use the American judicial system to achieve justice and we failed," the march's official website says.
"On Saturday, September 16, 2017, we are taking our fight to the streets. Literally."
The website then clarifies that this won't be one of the hardcore parties they are known for throwing.
"This march is a serious, peaceful public demonstration, organized for one purpose — to deliver a message to the world showing how Juggalos have been unfairly stigmatized and discriminated against simply for identifying as being part of a particular music-based subculture," it says.
"The golden rule of the march for participants is simply this: If you're not serious about being there, just stay home."
After the march, the Insane Clown Posse will also be hosting a free concert with appearances by 2 Live Crew, Vanilla Ice and more in nearby Bristow, Virginia.
