The shock-rap duo – who along with the group’s ‘Juggalo’ followers were classified as a criminal gang by the FBI in 2011 – recently spoke out about last year’s ‘killer clown’ craze.
“ICP has discovered over the last decade [that] there’s a whole army of scary, terrifying and dangerous clowns out there in this country trying to suppress the rights of thousands of people to exercise the most basic part of the Declaration of Independence, which evokes the freedom to ‘Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” they said.
They continued: “These clowns threaten the very fabric on which our nation was supposedly founded upon—and for some f—ing crazy-a– reason, they’re getting away with it. From keystone-cop clowns shooting unarmed citizens, to racist clowns burning down Islamic centers or clowns in the NSA spying on us through our cell phones and laptops, America has turned into something far more terrifying than Insane Clown Posse’s Dark Carnival. Even a scrub like me who dropped out of school in ninth grade can see what’s going on. Today’s reality is scarier than anything you’ll ever hear on one of our albums.”
Let’s hope that UK venues will allow ICP’s choice drink ‘Faygo’ – after they once cancelled a show after it was banned.
