Marches on Washington are all the rage. There was the Women’s March. Scientists are planning their own. And now, so are the Juggalos.
The hip-hop duo of Joseph “Violent J” Bruce and Joseph “Shaggy 2 Dope” Utler is protesting the FBI’s categorization of the group’s fans as a “loosely organized hybrid gang” with a “Juggalo March on Washington” on Sept. 16, 2017.
Juggalos have been listed as a gang since 2011. The group sued the FBI in 2014 over the classification. The Juggalos seem to be taking the event seriously.
“We tried to use the American judicial system to achieve justice and we failed…to be sure, this is NOT a party.”
“Juggalos have been unfairly stigmatized and discriminated against simply for identifying as being part of a particular music-based subculture,” the site reads. “… If you’re not serious about being there, just stay home.”
